According to a statement released by the companies, construction of the 205 MW wind farm began in September 2006, and commercial operation is slated to begin in the second half of 2007. Consisting of 137 GE 1.5 MW turbines, the Fenton wind farm will be operated and maintained by enXco Service Corp. Power from the Fenton project will be sold to Northern States Power, a subsidiary of Xcel Energy, under a 25-year purchase agreement.

Union Bank of California acted as lead underwriter for both the debt and equity financing for the project and will syndicate some of the equity.
