Sempra Generation, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, has become an equal partner with BP Wind Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of BP, in the development of the 200 MW Fowler Ridge II Wind Farm in Benton County, Ind.

The Fowler Ridge II Wind Farm joint venture currently is under construction on a 17,000-acre site about 90 miles northwest of Indianapolis and is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2010.

The project's entire power output already has been sold under four long-term 50 MW contracts. Three contracts were signed with units of American Electric Power and one with Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana, for terms of 20 years each. The project will use 133 wind turbines, each with the ability to generate 1.5 MW.

The Fowler Ridge II development is an expansion of Fowler Ridge I, a 400 MW wind farm that commenced operations in March.
