Partnership Expands Wind Power Facilities in Saline County, Nebraska
According to company officials, the Project is currently in development with anticipated operation to commence in late 2020. The Project, in Saline County in southern Nebraska, will sell its generated energy and Renewable Energy Credits into the Southwest Power Pool. Milligan 1 Wind marks the first project for EDF Renewables in Nebraska.
EDF Renewables is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 15 gigawatts of wind, solar, storage, projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
“EDF Renewables is pleased to bring 30 years of expertise in development, construction, and operation to Nebraska,” said Matthew McCluskey, Senior Director of Development for EDF Renewables.
“Nebraska’s abundant wind resource and supportive regulatory environment combine to create an opportunity for EDF Renewables to bring the benefits of jobs, landowner payments, and state and local tax revenue to the local community,” he added.
The expected electricity generated at full capacity is enough to meet the consumption of up to 115,000 average homes, company officials said. This is equivalent to avoiding more than 900,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually which represents the greenhouse gas emissions from 190,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.
