EDF Energies to Build a 150 MW Wind farm in California

enXco, EDF Energies Nouvelles' US subsidiary, has obtained a permit from the authorities of the Solano County, California, to build a 150 MW wind farm. This new large-scale wind farm, owned by enXco, will strengthen EDF Energies Nouvelles Group's already strong presence in California.

Located in Solano County, California, the Shiloh II project will be comprised of 75 turbines, each with 2 MW in capacity, supplied by German manufacturer REpower. The project is backed by a 20-year power purchase agreement with US electricity company Pacific Gas & Electric. Construction of the facility is due to be completed in late 2008.

This 150 MW project represents a significant success for EDF Energies Nouvelles’ Californian subsidiary. Following the 150 MW Shiloh I wind farm developed in 2005 for a third party, Shiloh II advances the Group’s already strong presence in California, a state heavily committed to renewable energy. Shiloh II represents the 15th California wind farm to be owned by enXco increasing total gross capacity to 448 MW.
