EDF Energy has bought a wind project in Texas.

The Salt Fork wind farm will have a capacity of up to 200MW and is expected to be commissioned in late 2016.

It will be tied into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas’ (ERCOT) Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) transmission line connecting the wind energy of northern Texas to high-consumption regions of the state.

The electricity generated by the first 150MW of Salt Fork will be sold to Garland Power & Light under a long-term Power Purchase Agreement.
