The construction of Drift Sand requires an investment of approximately 180 million US dollars and is part of the investments foreseen in the company’s current business plan. The project is financed through the Enel Green Power Group’s own resources and all of the power and renewable energy credits from Drift Sand will be sold under a bundled, long-term power purchase agreement.

The Drift Sand wind project is located in Grady County, Oklahoma. EGP-NA operates six wind farms in Oklahoma, with a total capacity of close to 1 GW.
