According to Escondido, Calif.-based enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, all 67 1.5 GE turbines in the 100.5 MW Grand Meadow Wind Project in Minnesota have been commissioned as of Dec. 31, 2008.

"The working relationship enXco has with Xcel Energy is outstanding and evidenced by the additional 351 MW we agreed to develop, build and sell to Xcel Energy during 2010 and 2011," says Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO of enXco. "Grand Meadow represents the first wind project built for Xcel Energy under a develop, build and sell agreement."
