Subsidiaries of E.ON SE and GE are forming an investment partnership to own and operate Grandview Phase I, a 211 MW GE-powered wind farm now under construction in the Texas Panhandle.

GE Energy Financial Services provided 50% of the partnership equity in the project, with the balance provided by E.ON's subsidiary, E.ON Climate and Renewables North America LLC (EC&RNA). Financial details were not disclosed.

Located 26 miles east of Amarillo in Carson County, Grandview I will use 118 GE 1.7-100 wind turbines, which GE will service under a five-year agreement. EC&RNA is managing construction of the wind farm, expected to begin commercial operations in December. Once complete, EC&RNA will provide operations and maintenance.

The wind farm will feed power into the Competitive Renewable Energy Zones infrastructure in Texas, using the lines built to add renewable capacity in the state. During peak construction, the project will create about 250-300 jobs this year and 10 to 12 permanent jobs in Carson County, note the participants.
