Wisconsin Public Service Corp. (WPS), a subsidiary of Integrys Energy Group Inc., and enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, have closed on the acquisition and sale agreement for the Crane Creek Wind Farm, a 99 MW project to be constructed in Howard County, Iowa. enXco will build the wind farm and turn it over to WPS in a turnkey transaction.

The two companies earlier reached an agreement in which WPS will contract with enXco Service Corp. to operate and provide maintenance for the 66 turbines, including 24/7 remote monitoring from their operations control center located in Chandler, Minn.

The wind farm is expected to be operational in late December 2009, helping WPS reach its state-mandated renewable portfolio standard target of generating 10% of its retail electrical sales with renewable power by 2015.
