Wind energy farm to be upgraded by EDF unit

EDF Energies Nouvelles SA said it will upgrade the 100 MW Shiloh wind farm in California and sell the power to Pacific Gas & Electric Co (NYSE: PCG).

Bloomberg reports that EDF’s EnXco Inc. unit will boost output from the plant by removing turbines from the initial 25 MW project built in 1989 and installing more efficient models. PG&E will reportedly buy the output under a 25-year power purchase agreement.

The project is expected to be completed by 2012.
