May 20 (Renewables Now) - Chicago-based renewables developer Invenergy announced today it is transferring two wind projects in Wyoming totalling 750 MW to power company PacifiCorp, a unit of Berkshire Hathaway Energy.
More specifically, Invenergy is transferring the 250-MW Ekola Flats and 500-MW TB Flats projects, both of which are located in Carbon County. The company developed both schemes for PacifiCorp and, according to Mick Baird, senior vice president of renewable development for Invenergy, it has now worked on most of the new wind resources that will be added to PacifiCorp’s portfolio by the end of next year.
Building works on the two wind farms started this spring and is expected to be completed in 2020. Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS) is the supplier of wind turbines for both projects.
Upon completion, the two wind parks will generate enough electricity to cover the annual power needs of over 220,000 local homes.
