EDPR secures PPAs for new 150 MW wind farm in the US
EDP Renewables (EDP Renováveis, Euronext: EDPR), a global leader in the renewable energy sector and the world’s third-largest wind energy producer, through its fully owned subsidiary EDP Renewables North America LLC, signed two Power Purchase Agreements (“PPAs”), a 20-year PPA for 50 MW and a 15-year PPA for 100 MW, to sell the renewable energy produced from a 150 MW wind farm project located in the state of Texas. The wind farm is expected to be installed in 2016 and to be qualified for Production Tax Credits (“PTC”).
Since the beginning of 2013 EDPR has already secured 1,380 MW of new PPAs, of which 250 MW for projects that were already in operation and 1,130 MW for new projects to be installed in 2014 and beyond.
The success of EDPR in securing new PPAs reinforces the company’s low risk profile and provides solid visibility to its growth prospects.
