Edison Mission Group (EMG), a subsidiary of Edison International, has begun commercial operation of the 150 MW Cedro Hill wind project, located in Texas.

All of the electricity produced by the project is being sold under a 20-year power purchase agreement with CPS Energy of San Antonio.

Cedro Hill is EMG's third wind project in Texas, joining the 161 MW Wildorado Wind Ranch near Amarillo and the 149 MW Goat wind project near San Angelo.

The Cedro Hill wind project is powered by 100 GE turbines with a generating capacity of 1.5 MW each. The project spans 20,000 acres. It interconnects to the electric grid at the La Quinta switching station and connects to CPS Energy through the 138 kV Lobo-Falfurrias transmission line.

The project represents a total investment of $300 million in Webb County. It is supporting the local economy with more than $100 million in property taxes and payments to local landowners over the next 20 years, according to EMG.
