enXco will develop, build and own the wind project, which will consist of 134 1.5 MW GE wind turbines, while IPL will purchase the power generated under a 20-year power purchase agreement. The project, expected to be operational by the end of 2010, will be operated and maintained by enXco Service Corp.
