EDF Renewable Energy (formerly enXco) says the 102.5 MW Shiloh IV Wind Project, located in Solano County, Calif., is now operational.

In addition, the company has closed financing on the project via a sale-leaseback transaction with Union Bank of California Leasing Inc., a subsidiary of Union Bank.

The Shiloh IV project, developed and owned by EDF Renewable Energy, consists of 50 REpower MM92 turbines. It is the largest operational wind repowering project in the country, according to EDF Renewable Energy. For the project, wind turbines installed in the late 1980s were replaced with modern technology, allowing for a tenfold increase in clean electricity generated with 22% fewer wind turbines, the company explains.

The project will deliver electricity into the California Independent System Operator transmission system, for the benefit of Pacific Gas and Electric Co., under a 25-year power purchase agreement. EDF Renewable Services (formerly enXco Service Corp.) will provide the operations and maintenance services for the wind farm.
