In a first-time partnership, Salt Lake City-based sPower has confirmed an order with Vestas for 2 MW and 4 MW turbine components that qualify for 80% of the federal production tax credit (PTC) and enable 400 MW of future project development.
“We are looking forward to working with Vestas and adding their wind turbines to our fleet,” says Ryan Creamer, CEO of sPower. “These turbines add to our PTC-qualified inventory and ensure sPower’s continued growth and economic development in the United States.”
sPower, an AES and AIMCo company, calls itself the largest private owner of operating solar assets in the U.S. sPower owns and operates a portfolio of solar and wind assets greater than 1.3 GW and has a development pipeline of more than 10 GW.
“sPower has long been a respected energy leader, and we are proud to work with them as they leverage their energy expertise into the wind market,” adds Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in the U.S. and Canada.
