The Spinning Spur III project in Oldham County, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) west of Amarillo, will go into operation by the end of next year, San Diego-based EDF Renewable Energy said today in a statement. Terms weren’t disclosed.
Georgetown Utility Systems and Garland Power & Light agreed to buy the electricity under long-term contracts.
EDF bought the remaining 49 percent that it didn’t already own of Cielo’s 161-megawatt Spinning Spur II project in April. The company will have more than 1 gigawatt of installed wind-power capacity in Texas by the end of 2015, according to the statement.
