PG&E wind farm closer to completion
Representatives from Pacific Gas and Electric Co., international wind project developer EnXco Inc. and elected officials gathered in Rio Vista last week to celebrate the ongoing development of a 102.5-megawatt wind farm.
Construction on the project, which will provide electricity for 50,000 average PG&E households, began in May. The project is expected to begin generating carbon-free electricity for PG&E (NYSE: PCG) in December.
The $300 million Shiloh III wind farm consists of 50 240-foot-tall windmills on 4,600 acres in the Montezuma Hills Wind Resource Area.
The wind project is being developed by EnXco, the U.S. subsidiary of French company EDF Energies Nouvelles. The subsidiary has a 20-year contract to sell the power to PG&E.
