Ridgeline Energy LLC and BP Wind Energy have announced that they are mobilizing the construction site for the Goshen North wind farm in Bonneville County, Idaho. When fully operational, the wind farm will have a generating capacity of 124.5 MW.
Located on an 11,000-acre site located approximately 10 miles east of the city of Idaho Falls, the Goshen North wind farm will utilize 83 1.5 MW GE xle wind turbines. The project is expected to employ approximately 250 workers during peak construction and is scheduled to be in commercial operation by year-end. The balance-of-plant contract has been awarded to Mortenson Construction.
The Goshen North wind farm is a joint development venture between Ridgeline Energy and BP Wind Energy. The power from the Goshen North wind farm has been sold under a long-term power purchase agreement to Southern California Edison. BP Wind Energy will be the operator of the wind farm.
