Engie North America Inc. acquired the 151.2-MW Dakota Range Wind III project in Grant and Roberts counties, S.D., from Apex Clean Energy Inc. for undisclosed financial terms.
Apex divested its ownership and facilitated a power purchase agreement with Xcel Energy Inc. for the project's entire output. "Dakota Range III continues ENGIE's significant expansion in the utility-scale renewable market via both greenfield development and acquisition," said Matt Riley, senior vice president and head of U.S. development for Engie North America.
The Engie SA subsidiary expects to complete development of the project with Apex by the summer of 2019. The facility is slated to enter commercial operation in late 2020.
