Idaho Winds LLC has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement with Idaho Power Co. for the output from the 22 MW Sawtooth Wind Project, which will be located in Elmore County, Idaho.
The project will provide the average energy supply for approximately 14,000 homes within Idaho Power Co.'s service territory. Debt financing was completed last week with EIG Global Energy Partners, and construction began this week.
The project will utilize 14 GE 1.6 MW wind turbines and is expected to be complete in December. The project will be operated by PowerWorks LLC, an affiliate of Idaho Winds.
