EDPR sparks NY wind
77.7MW Jericho Rise wind farm consists of Gamesa G114 2.1MW turbines
EDP Renewables North America has started commercial operation at the 77.7MW Jericho Rise wind farm in northern New York State.
The New York Power Authority has completed work at a Franklin County substation allowing the wind farm to tie into the state power grid.
EDPR installed 37 Gamesa G114 2.1MW turbines at a site in the towns of Chateaugay and Bellmont.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority awarded the project with state funding in a 2014 solicitation.
The developer also has closed a $342m tax equity financing with Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Bank of New York Mellon in exchange for interests in Jericho Rise and the 250MW Hidalgo project in Texas.
