NRG Energy Inc., through its wholly owned subsidiary Padoma Wind Power LLC, has entered into a 50-50 joint venture with BP Alternative Energy North America to build the first phase of the Sherbino Wind Farm.

The Sherbino I Wind Farm will be a 150 MW wind project, consisting of 50 Vestas 3 MW wind turbines, located in Pecos County, Texas.

Padoma Wind Power is managing the construction, which began in late 2007, with Mortenson Construction as the engineering, procurement and construction contractor. The project is scheduled to begin commercial operation during the second half of 2008, at which time BP will handle the operations and dispatch.

"Harnessing west Texas' abundant wind adds to our country's efforts to become more energy independent while helping further diversify the Texas fuel mix," says Jan Paulin, president and CEO of Padoma Wind Power. "Later this year, we will be online, delivering electricity to Texans to help meet the ever increasing demand for additional power."
