IPL and enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, have announced that construction will begin on the 106 MW Hoosier Wind Project in Benton County, Ind. The wind farm will bring power into the Indianapolis Power & Light Co. (IPL) generation portfolio.

The new wind project, developed and owned by enXco, stretches over 6,500 acres of farmland and consists of 53 2 MW REpower wind turbines. IPL will purchase the power generated under a 20-year power purchase agreement. enXco Service Corp. will provide operations and maintenance services.

"The Hoosier Wind Project is a major step for IPL as we provide our customers with a direct source of alternative energy," says Ann Murtlow, IPL president and CEO. "Our customers are increasingly interested in green energy options and wind is a renewable energy source that IPL and enXco can effectively harness."

The project is expected to be in operation later this year as part of IPL's effort to power the nearly 470,000 customers served by the utility.
