NextEra Energy Resources has cut the ribbon on the Limon I and II Wind Energy Centers - a pair of installations located outside of Denver that has a combined capacity of 400 MW. Utility Xcel Energy is purchasing the projects' output under long-term contracts.

Each project consists of 125 GE 1.6 MW wind turbines. In addition to the wind farms, an approximately 45-mile, 345 kV transmission line was built to interconnect the wind farms to the Missile Site substation in Arapahoe County.

The projects, which are spread across more than 55,000 acres in Arapahoe, Elbert and Lincoln counties, are owned and will be operated by affiliates of NextEra Energy Resources.
