SAN DIEGO -- January 9, 2014

EDF Renewable Energy today announced the acquisition of Roosevelt Wind
Project, LLC from Infinity Wind Power. The up to 300 megawatt (MW) project is
expected to achieve commercial operation in December 2015.

The project encompasses approximately 62,000 acres of grazing farmland within
Roosevelt County, New Mexico, roughly 18 miles southwest of Portales.
Southwestern Public Service Company (SPS), a subsidiary of Xcel Energy, will
purchase the electricity generated by the 250 MW first phase of the project,
pursuant to a 20-year, fixed-price power purchase agreement.

“The Roosevelt project will be the first wind facility constructed and owned
by EDF Renewable Energy in New Mexico,” commented Ryan Pfaff, Executive Vice
President at EDF Renewable Energy. “We are excited to add another dimension to
our business activities in the state, where our operations and maintenance
subsidiary, EDF Renewable Services, has been active since 2004. Roosevelt is a
good strategic fit for EDF RE, given its proximity to our growing fleet in the
Texas Panhandle, and affords us the opportunity to expand our relationship
with Southwestern Public Service - one of our valued utility partners.”

“Infinity Wind Power is delighted to partner with EDF Renewable Energy on the
Roosevelt Wind Project,” said Matt Riley, Chief Executive Officer at Infinity
Wind Power. “EDF Renewable Energy’s stellar reputation as a wind energy owner
and operator, especially their focus on community and landowner relations, is
a perfect complement to Infinity’s mission.”
