First Wind Secures Energy Sales Agreements with Idaho Power Company

First Wind confirmed that the Idaho Public Utilities Commission has approved energy sale agreements with five proposed First Wind solar projects and the Idaho Power Company. The contracts are for 20 years and for projects that total 100 megawatts (MW). The five 20 MW projects are spread across southern Idaho where they will provide energy and economic diversity to Ada, Elmore, Owyhee and Power counties. Each project is targeted to be completed by the end of 2016. Taken together, close to $10 million in direct property taxes will be generated by the projects over 20 years. The five projects combined are expected to generate approximately 250,000 MW hours annually enough to power the equivalent of nearly 30,000 homes.

First Wind Holdings LLC to Build 200-MW Wind Project in Texas

First Wind Holdings LLC said it has obtained $254 million in financing for a 200-MW wind project in Texas, and confirmed an order for 100 Vestas turbines. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group provided tax equity for the South Plains Wind project, while BayernLB brought term debt financing. The wind farm will be built in Floyd County using Vestas Wind Systems A/S' V100-2.0 MW turbines. The delivery of the equipment is expected to take place in late 2015. It did not provide further details on the supply-only deal. The park, estimated to produce enough power annually for over 62,000 households in Texas, is planned to be up and running by the end of next year. By that time, First Wind also expects to completed construction of its 150-MW Route 66 wind farm in the same state. South Plains was planned as a two-phase, 500-MW community wind farm project. First Wind said in January that it has taken Floyd County Wind Farm LLC's stake in it.
