The US$535 million project consisting of Vestas V90 1.8 MW wind turbines, will provide power to the Public Service Company of Colorado, a subsidiary of Xcel Energy, under a power purchase agreement.
Al Monaco, President, Gas Pipelines, Green Energy & International at Enbridge, says: "We are [...] pleased that this project has created near-term employment in Colorado, and has advanced the state’s renewable energy policy objectives. The Cedar Point Wind Project is our first US wind investment, an excellent addition to our rapidly growing renewable energy portfolio."
Susan Reilly, CEO of RES Americas, adds: "This is an excellent example of the success of the Treasury Grant Program – wind projects like Cedar Point not only generate clean, renewable energy, they also create jobs, drive investment, and diversify our nation's energy portfolio. We've enjoyed working with Enbridge, Vestas, and the many other vendors and sub-contractors to make Cedar Point a success, and we look forward to working with other Colorado communities on future renewable energy projects."
