EDF Renewable Energy announced a 20-year PPA with Southern California Edison (SCE), contracted through the California Renewable Auction Mechanism (RAM) competitive procurement program, for 19.8 MW wind project. The Patterson Pass Wind Project is a repowering effort whereby older technology is upgraded allowing for increased generation of clean energy with fewer wind turbines. Approximately 300 Nordtank and Bonus 65kW turbines, originally installed in 1985, will be removed as part of the development process. EDF Renewable Energy will develop, own and operate the wind project with SCE purchasing the power generated. Commercial operation is anticipated for the end of 2015. EDF Renewable Services will continue to operate and maintain the project.
