Spain-headquartered Acciona has acquired exclusive rights to develop 1,300 MW of wind assets in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. The development will take place through an acquisition of projects from EcoEnergy LLC, a Freeport, Ill.-headquartered alternative energy solutions developer and a unit of The Morse Group.

Acciona plans to install approximately 150 MW or more in 2008 from this pipeline. EcoEnergy's near-term development assets include projects in Stephenson County, Ill., and northeastern Wisconsin. Acciona will be supplying its own wind turbines for each of these development projects from its new U.S. production facility in Iowa, the company adds.

"We are very excited to collaborate with Acciona on providing wind energy solutions to local communities in which we have been operating for more than 63 years," says Shawn Gaffney, president of EcoEnergy LLC. "We feel this is an excellent time to integrate the latest in wind energy technology with the need for new local career opportunities in this fast-growing new industry."
