EDF Renewable Buying Salt Fork Wind Project in Texas From Cielo

Electricite de France SA’s U.S. renewable energy unit agreed to buy a wind farm in the Texas Panhandle.

The Salt Fork project will have as much as 200 megawatts of capacity when it’s complete next year, according to a statement Tuesday from San Diego-based EDF Renewable Energy. Terms of the purchase from Cielo Wind Power LP weren’t disclosed.

The local utility Garland Power & Light has agreed to buy the electricity under a long-term contract.

Including Salt Fork, which is about 45 miles (72 kilometers) east of Amarillo, EDF Renewable has 1.2 gigawatts of wind-energy capacity in operation or under development in Texas.
