WCN Editorial Team 13 Apr 2016 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA), a subsidiary of Enel, has begun construction on the Cimarron Bend wind farm in the US, which will entail an investment of about $610m.

Located in Clark County, Kansas, the wind farm will be owned by Cimarron Bend Wind Project, a subsidiary of EGPNA.

When completed, Cimarron Bend will have a total installed capacity of 400MW and will be able to generate around 1.8TWh annually, which will be sufficient to cater to the annual consumption needs of more than 149,000 US households. It will also prevent the emission of around 1.3m tonnes of CO2 each year.

The power and renewable energy credits from Cimarron Bend will be sold under two 200MW bundled, long-term power purchase agreements with Google and Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) respectively.

The project is slated to begin operations by 2017. It is financed through the Enel Group's own resources.

Enel Green Power head Francesco Venturini said: "This project marks a major milestone for Enel, as not only will Cimarron Bend be the largest asset in our portfolio, but it also opens our renewable energy to new partners and uses.

"As we continue to invest and grow in the US we aim to cooperate with companies and partners that share the same vision for a more sustainable future."
