Enel Green Power North America (EGP-NA) has completed the Osage Wind Farm, located in Osage County, Okla.

The project has a total installed capacity of 150 MW and is owned by Osage Wind LLC, with 50% owned by EGP-NA.

The entry into operation of the Osage Wind Farm further confirms the company's commitment to its continued growth in the U.S. renewable market – particularly in Oklahoma, where EGP-NA already operates the 235 MW Chisholm View Wind Farm, the 150 MW Rocky Ridge Wind Farm and the 150 MW Origin Wind Farm.

EGP-NA also has two additional wind projects currently under construction in Oklahoma for a total additional capacity of 274 MW. These projects are expected to be online by the end of the year.

In other company news, Enel says it has grid-connected the Dominica II Wind Farm, located in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi. The new facility adds 100 MW to the capacity of the existing 100 MW Dominica I.

EGP-NA has invested a total of approximately $160 million in the construction of Dominica II, in line with the growth targets set out by EGP-NA's current business plan. The investment has been partially financed through a loan agreement with Banco Santander and covered by the Spanish Export Credit Agency. Dominica I and II are supported by long-term power purchase agreements.

The company says its installed capacity in Mexico is nearly 500 MW.
