SunEdison has announced that it has closed financing and begun construction on one of its largest wind farms to date, the 300MW South Plains II wind farm in Floyd County, Texas, USA.
Citi provided the construction loan facilities for the project and BHE Renewables, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Energy, in partnership with Citi, will invest in the tax equity. The project is being built by Mortenson Construction and the wind turbines are being supplied by Vestas. Hewlett-Packard plans to purchase 112MW of the wind farm's capacity to power 100 per cent of its Texas-based data. The remaining 188MW capacity will be sold to an affiliate of Citi. Construction is targeted for completion in 2016. Operation and maintenance of the wind power plants will be performed by SunEdison Services.
