The Platte River Power Authority's board of directors has approved the purchase of 28 MW of additional wind energy from Invenergy's Spring Canyon Energy Center, located in Logan County, Colo.

According to Invenergy, the additional 28 MW of wind power will be generated at a third project phase to be called the Spring Canyon III Energy Center. Platte River will be purchasing the full 60 MW from Spring Canyon II and III - from 35 wind turbines -with all new wind generation to be on line by the end of this year.

Platte River contracted with an affiliate of Invenergy Wind LLC in May 2013 to purchase 32 MW from the second phase of Spring Canyon, which is now under construction.

Both Spring Canyon II and III are sited near Invenergy’s original Spring Canyon Energy facility, a 60 MW project in operation since 2006.
