Southern Power Purchases Two Wind Projects totaling 300 MW


By Editors of Power Engineering

Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, has closed on the purchase of two Texas wind projects developed by EDF Renewable Energy.

The developments include the Salt Fork Wind Project in Donley and Gray counties, which includes 87 wind turbines that generate 174 MW; and the Tyler Bluff Wind Facility in Cooke County, which includes 52 wind turbines that generate 126 MW.

The City of Garland, Texas has a long-term power purchase agreement with Salt Fork, while Procter & Gamble purchases the majority of Tyler Bluff’s output.

“The EDF RE team is pleased to forge a new business relationship with Southern Power through these transactions,” said Raphael Declercq, vice president of portfolio strategy for EDF Renewable Energy. “We are confident that our expertise as a developer, construction manager and operator complements Southern Power’s strategy to grow its wholesale business through the acquisition of renewable assets covered by long-term contracts.”

EDF will continue to service the projects.
