Escondido, Calif.-based enXco Service Corp., an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, has begun providing full operations and maintenance services under a multiyear operations and maintenance (O&M) Agreement with Iowa Lakes Electric Cooperative.

The services include scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and 24/7 remote monitoring for two wind energy projects located 40 miles apart in Dickinson and Kossuth counties in northwest Iowa. Each site consists of seven 1.5 MW GE turbines, with a total capacity of 21 MW.

"These are the first cooperative-owned, community-based wind projects that enXco Service Corp. will provide services to through an O&M Agreement," says Dave Luck, director of business development for enXco Service Corp. "The projects are further unique, as they provide power to ethanol plants located nearby."

The two wind farms, strategically located to provide power to adjoining ethanol plants, are expected to generate more than 71 million kWh of renewable energy annually, which is enough electricity to power the ethanol plants. The cooperative wind projects are locally owned by approximately 9,000 citizens in northwest Iowa.
