Southern Power Acquires 276-MW Bethel Wind Energy Center


By Editors of Power Engineering

Southern Power announced it has acquired the 276-MW Bethel Wind Energy Center from Invenergy Services.

The purchase price was not disclosed. Blattner Energy constructed the facility, and Invenergy Services will operate it when it’s officially commissioned later this month.

Including Bethel Wind Energy Center, Southern Power now owns more than 3,200 MW of renewable energy sources across 36 solar, wind and biomass facilities either announced, acquired or under construction.

Southern Energy, the parent company of Southern Power, has completed or is developing 6,500 MW of renewable generation since 2012.

The majority of the electricity and renewable energy credits generated by Bethel Wind will be sold to Google Energy. Southern Power will retain the remainder.
