Indiana Michigan Power Co. (I&M), a subsidiary of American Electric Power (AEP), has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement with EDP Renewables North America LLC (EDPR) to buy the output from the 200 MW Headwaters wind farm.

The Headwaters project will be built in Randolph County, Ind., and connect to the AEP transmission system to deliver power to I&M customers in both Michigan and Indiana. Construction on Headwaters is slated to begin before year-end and be complete by the end of 2014.

“Our agreement with EDPR is an important step in our continuing efforts to diversify our generation portfolio, which includes wind, hydro, nuclear and coal,” says Paul Chodak III, president and chief operating officer for I&M. The utility says this new contract will bring I&M’s total wind power portfolio to 450 MW.
