EDF Renewable Energy Wins 150 Megawatt Wind Project

San Diego-based renewable energy developer EDF Renewable Energy and Otter Tail Power Company announced Thursday morning that the two are working together on a 150 megawatt (MW) wind project in North Dakota. The two said that EDF RE will build the 150MW Merricourt Wind Project, which will be purchased by Otter Tail Power Company upon completion. The deal includes 75 wind turbines, which will be erected on 13,700 ares near Edgeley, North Dakota. The two said the wind farm will power approximately 65,000 homes in Otter Tail Power Company's service territory, and bring the power company's wind mix to nearly 28 percent.
