Southern Power has announced that the 148MW Cactus Flats Wind Facility in Concho County, Texas is operational. The electricity and associated renewable energy credits (RECs) generated by the facility are being sold under two separate power purchase agreements with General Mills and General Motors.
Both companies have the option to keep or sell the associated RECs. Cactus Flats consists of 43 wind turbines manufactured by Vestas, which is jointly maintaining and operating the facility with Southern Power. Southern Power is also performing the balance of plant operations of the facility. Southern Power acquired the facility in July 2017 from Renewable Energy Systems Americas (RES) and oversaw all construction activity on site. RES served as the developer and constructor of the site.
