Enbridge’s 110-MW Keechi Wind Project has reached commercial operations in Jack County, Texas.
Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. (RES Americas) served as the developer, engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the project. Construction at the site began in December 2013, and features 55 Vestas V100-2.0-MW turbines. Vestas will provide turbine operations and maintenance services for the turbines during the first five years of the project. During peak construction, the project created about 250 jobs.
The project connects to Brazos Electric's Joplin substation through a 12-mile generation line and will deliver electricity into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market, under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Microsoft Corp.
