Energy company Enbridge Inc. has entered into an agreement with Renewable Energy Systems Americas Inc. for the construction of the 110 MW Keechi Wind Project, located in Jack County, Texas, at a cost of approximately $200 million.

According to Enbridge, construction on Keechi Wind commenced in December 2013, and the project is expected to reach commissioning in the first quarter of 2015. Upon attaining commercial operation, MetLife Inc. will provide tax equity financing for the project, Enbridge notes.

The company says the project will deliver electricity into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas Inc. market under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Microsoft Corp.

A 12-mile generation tie-line will connect the project to Brazos Electric Power Cooperative's Joplin substation, Enbridge adds.
