“Lindahl underlines the strength of Enel’s growth strategy in North America. The new wind farm also marks the Group’s entrance into a new state, North Dakota, further broadening our geographical footprint in the United States”
The construction of Lindahl, which is expected to enter into service by 2017, will require an investment of over 220 million US dollars, in line with the Enel Group’s current strategic plan. All of the power and renewable energy credits from the Lindahl wind project will be sold under a bundled, long-term power purchase agreement to Basin Electric Power Cooperative.
Lindahl is the fourth Enel renewable energy project to start construction in the United States since the beginning of 2016, together with the 108 MW Drift Sand wind farm in Oklahoma, the 400 MW Cimarron Bend wind project in Kansas and the 150 MW Aurora solar power project in Minnesota.
EGPNA is present in 22 US states and two Canadian provinces with more than 2.5 GW of total installed capacity, of which over 2 GW comes from wind, 316 MW from hydro, 72 MW from geothermal and 29 MW from solar.
