Edison Mission Group (EMG), a subsidiary of Edison International, has officially dedicated its Cedro Hill wind project, located in Bruni, Texas. The site began commercial operations in December 2010.
All of the electricity produced by the 150 MW project is being provided to CPS Energy of San Antonio under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
Cedro Hill is powered by 100 GE turbines with a generating capacity of 1.5 MW each. The project site spans approximately 20,000 acres. It interconnects to the electric grid at the La Quinta switching station and connects to CPS Energy through the 138 kV Lobo-Falfurrias transmission line.
According to EMG, Cedro Hill represents a total investment of $300 million in Webb County and will support the local economy with more than $100 million in property taxes and payments to local landowners over the next 20 years, and an annual contribution of $250,000 to the Webb County Consolidated Independent School District for 10 years beginning in 2013.
