EDF Renewable Services, provider of renewable operations and maintenance services, entered into a contract with Allete Clean Energy, a unit of Allete, to provide round-the-clock remote monitoring and wind turbine resets for five of its wind projects located in Oregon, Iowa, Minnesota and Pennsylvania.
