Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, has agreed to purchase the Shirley Windpower Project from a subsidiary of Central Hudson Enterprises Corp. The wind farm is located on approximately 500 acres of leased land in Glenmore, Wis., roughly 30 miles southeast of Green Bay.
The 20 MW wind farm, which began commercial operation in December 2010, comprises eight Nordex 2.5 MW wind turbines.
With the addition of the Shirley project, Duke Energy Renewables will own 1,006 MW of generating capacity at 10 U.S. wind farms – four in Wyoming, three in Texas, one in Colorado, one in Pennsylvania and one in Wisconsin.
The deal for the Shirley project is expected to close this summer. The purchase price was not disclosed.
