  1. EDF Renewable Energy announces operation at 225 MW wind project

    EDF Renewable Energy said the 225 MW Great Western Wind Project began commercial operation on December 21, 2016. The project’s output of wind power will be bought by Google under a long-term power purchase agreement. Located in Woodward and Ellis counties near the base of the Oklahoma panhandle, the wind power project is comprised of 30 V117 (unit capacity of 3.3 MW) and 63 V100 (unit capacity of 2.0 MW) wind turbines supplied by Vestas. The facility generates enough electricity to power 70,000 average Oklahoma homes, according to US Energy Information Administration. The agreement with Google to purchase the power from Great Western was first announced in Paris, France in December 2015 as part of Google’s presence at the 21st Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. "Google has already committed to purchase more renewable energy than any other company and now, through a series of new wind and solar projects around the world, we are on track to reach 100 percent clean energy for our global operations this year," said Gary Demasi, Google’s Director of Operations for Data Center Energy and Location Strategy. EDF RE and Google forged a relationship in December 2012, when Google made an about $200 million equity investment in EDF RE’s Spinning Spur Wind Project, located in Oldham County, Texas. With the addition of Great Western, Google’s renewable energy long-term contracts reach 2.6 gigawatts, making them not only one of the first corporations to procure renewables, but also the largest corporate buyer of renewable power in the world to date. EDF’s North America portfolio of corporate purchasers also includes Procter & Gamble, Salesforce, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Groupo Modelo, and Walmart. EDF Renewable Energy is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 8 gigawatts of wind, solar, storage, biomass, and biogas projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
