Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA) has begun construction on the $220M Lindahl wind project in North Dakota, USA.
Upon completion, the 150MW wind farm — owned by EGPNA’s subsidiary Lindahl Wind Project — will be able to generate about 625GWh annually, the equivalent to the energy consumption needs of more than 50,000 US households. It will also eliminate about 450,000t of CO2 emissions each year.
The power generated from the Lindahl wind project will be sold under a bundled, long-term power purchase agreement to Basin Electric Power Cooperative.
Rafael Gonzalez, head of North America area for Enel’s Global Renewable Energies Division, said: “Lindahl underlines the strength of Enel’s growth strategy in North America.
“The new wind farm also marks the group’s entrance into a new state, North Dakota, further broadening our geographical footprint in the United States.”
The wind farm is scheduled to be operational in 2017.
