Indiana wind power project continues expansion

E.ON Climate & Renwables has said the company could begin construction of two more phases of the Wildcat Wind Farm in Indiana, according to a report from the Kokomo Tribune.

The first phase of the project, which began operations in January, included 125 turbines to generate 200 MW of electricity. The second phase of the project will create another 100 MW of power capacity, and the third and fourth phases will generate up to 800 MW of power, according to the Tribune.

A representative from E.ON told the Tribune that construction on the second phase of the project would begin this year and be completed in 2014.

The report also states Indiana & Michigan Electric is purchasing half the electricity being generated by the first phase of the project, with the rest being sold on the open market.
