EDF Renewable Energy has acquired the 200 MW Hereford 1 wind project in the Texas Panhandle from Lincoln Renewable Energy, and construction has commenced. EDF notes that it now has 561 MW of wind capacity either in construction or ready-to-build in Texas.

Encompassing approximately 15,000 acres in Deaf Smith County, southeast of the town of Hereford, the project will take advantage of the CREZ (Competitive Renewable Energy Zone) transmission lines connecting the wind generating capacity of the Texas Panhandle to high electricity demand areas in the state. EDF Renewable Energy has also secured a long-term, fixed-price hedge agreement for the expected energy production.

On Nov. 26, Lincoln Renewable Energy announced it had started construction of its 300 MW Hereford 2 wind power project in Castro County, Texas.
