The Cedar Point Wind Energy Project, developed by RES Americas, is located approximately 80 miles east of Denver. Construction of the project will begin shortly with substantial completion expected in late 2011.

The project will deliver electricity to the Public Service Company of Colorado (PSCo) electricity transmission grid under a 20-year, fixed-price power purchase agreement.

The Cedar Point Wind Energy Project brings Enbridge’s interests in renewable energy projects to eight, including interests in wind and solar projects, a hybrid fuel cell and waste heat recovery facilities.

Enbridge said that the wind project brings the total generating capacity of the green energy projects in which it has interests to more than 800MW – enough to meet the energy needs of about 260,000 homes.

The Cedar project will comprise 139 Vestas 1.8MW turbines, which will be connected to the PSCo grid by a 42-mile transmission line. RES Americas will construct the wind farm and transmission line under a fixed price, turnkey EPC agreement with Enbridge. Vestas will provide operations and maintenance services under a five-year, fixed price service, maintenance and warranty agreement.
