Sponsored by

EDF Renewable Energy bought the 200 MW Hereford 1 Wind Project in the Texas Panhandle from Lincoln Renewable Energy and construction has commenced.

Encompassing about 15,000 acres in Deaf Smith County, southeast of the town of Hereford, the project will take advantage of the competitive renewable energy zone (CREZ) transmission lines connecting the wind power capacity of the Texas Panhandle to high electricity demand areas in the state.

EDF Renewable Energy has also secured a long-term, fixed-price hedge agreement for the expected energy production.

EDF Renewable Energy presently has 561 MW of wind energy capacity either in construction or ready-to-build in the state of Texas.
