EDF Renewables North America has acquired the 300 MW Milligan 1 Wind Project in southern Nebraska.
EDF closed a purchase agreement with York Nebraska Wind Partners LLC, a partnership between Aksamit Resource Management LLC and York Capital Management, for 100% of the interests in the wind farm.
The project, currently under development, is expected to be operational in 2020. Sited in Saline County, the wind farm will sell its generated energy and renewable energy credits into the Southwest Power Pool.
“EDF Renewables is pleased to bring 30 years of expertise in development, construction and operation to Nebraska,” comments Matthew McCluskey, senior director of development for EDF Renewables. “Nebraska’s abundant wind resource and supportive regulatory environment combine to create an opportunity for EDF Renewables to bring the benefits of jobs, landowner payments, and state and local tax revenue to the local community.”
Milligan 1 Wind marks the first project for EDF Renewables in Nebraska.
