EDF Energies Nouvelles has announced the acquisition of Roosevelt, a wind energy project with potentially up to 300 MW in capacity in the United States. The Roosevelt wind farm is the first project undertaken by EDF Renewable Energy, the US subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles, in the State of New Mexico.

Located in Roosevelt County (eastern New Mexico), the wind energy project of the same name gives a new dimension to EDF Energies Nouvelles’ local subsidiary in a state where it has provided operations and maintenance services since 2004. The Roosevelt project is strategically located close to two wind farms already in service and another four projects under development in Texas.

Initially developed by Infinity Wind Power, the future Roosevelt wind farm is due to be commissioned in December  2015.

The power generated by the first 250 MW tranche will be sold pursuant to a 20-year fixed price power purchase agreement.
