San Diego’s EDF Renewables and Alliant Energy’s Iowa energy company announced an agreement for EDF Renewables to develop and construct up to 200 megawatts (MW) of the Golden Plains Wind Project.
Golden Plains Wind Project is located in Winnebago and Kossuth counties in the north central portion of Iowa. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
According to EDF, the project will be completed by early 2020 and is expected to produce enough energy to power 87,000 average homes a year.
"We are pleased to partner with Alliant Energy to deliver competitively-priced, clean energy to its customers through the Golden Plains Wind Project,” said Kate O’Hair, vice president development, North Region, at EDF Renewables. “The project will also provide an economic boost to the Iowa economy, through new construction and operations jobs, expanded tax base, and recurring long-term income for participating landowners.”
EDF Renewables is an independent power producer and service provider in renewable energy.
