Nebraska-based utility Lincoln Electric System (LES) has signed a power purchase agreement with EDP Renewables for the 100 MW Arbuckle Mountain Wind Farm, located in Oklahoma.

According to LES, EDP Renewables' Arbuckle project is expected to begin operation by January 2016 and the additional wind energy will boost the renewable resource component of LES' power portfolio by 12%.

"By 2016, over 23 percent of LES' annual retail sales will be supplied by renewable resources, which includes wind, solar, hydro and landfill gas," says LES Administrator and CEO Kevin Wailes. "Aside from the environmental benefits, increasing the amount of renewable energy in our power resource portfolio will help mitigate the adverse impact that additional regulations on power plant emissions and fuel and electric market volatility can have on our low rates."
