Phase one of the development, totaling 280.5MW, became commercially operational in November, 2007. The final 20MW has now been brought on line. The power produced from the Cedar Creek wind farm is sold to the Public Service Company of Colorado, a subsidiary of Xcel Energy.

Mike Garland, head of Babcock & Brown Americas Infrastructure Group, said: The completion of Cedar Creek brings one of the state’s largest wind farms to full capacity, providing a significant source of in-state, renewable energy, as well as an exciting economic development in Weld County.

Bob Malone, chairman and president of BP America said: Today marks an important step for BP in helping Colorado increase its important role as a provider of energy to help meet growing state and national demands. We appreciate Colorado’s support of the Cedar Creek project – it’s a win, win for Colorado consumers and local landowners, and helps achieve important national energy and economic objectives.
