enXco says that a power purchase agreement (PPA) for the 102.5 MW Shiloh IV Wind Project has received approval from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).
For the project, located in Solano County, Calif., approximately 235 Kenetech 100 kW turbines originally installed in 1989 have been removed and will be replaced with 50 REpower 2.05 MW turbines.
enXco will develop, build and own the Shiloh IV Wind Project, and Pacific Gas and Electric will purchase the power generated under a 25-year PPA to supply approximately 40,000 average homes with clean electricity.
enXco expects that the project will achieve commercial operation by the end of this year. It will be operated and maintained by enXco Service Corp.
