Enel SpA subsidiary Enel Green Power North America energized the 400-MW Cimarron Bend wind farm in Clark County, Kan., according to a company release.
The $610 million project will sell electricity and renewable energy credits under two separate power purchase agreements contracts with Google Inc. and Kansas City Board of Public Utilities. The facility can generate about 1.8 TWh annually.
The PPA with Google began late 2016 following the commissioning of the first 200-MW phase of the Cimarron Bend project. The second unit Cimarron Bend II has just started supplying power to Kansas City Board of Public Utilities.
Cimarron Bend is owned by EGPNA Renewable Energy Partners LLC, a 50/50 joint venture between Enel Green Power North America and General Electric Co. unit GE Energy Financial Services.
