EDF Renewable Energy has launched the Spinning Spur II wind farm. The project will be the second phase of the Spinning Spur wind farm, completed in December 2012. The projects, located in Oldham County, Texas, are each 161 MW.

Spinning Spur II is slated to begin construction this June and will use 87 GE wind turbines. The wind farm will take advantage of the competitive renewable energy zones (CREZ) transmission line to transfer wind generation across the Texas Panhandle to areas in the state with high electricity demand. The project's output will be sold under a 10-year power purchase agreement.

"The production tax credit extension in early 2013 and the CREZ transmission line build-out together in parallel create an opportunity for EDF Renewable Energy to strengthen our presence in a promising region of Texas with high-quality wind resources," says Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO of EDF Renewable Energy.
