TradeWind Energy to sell Oklahoma wind project to Enel

Osage Wind LLC applied July 31 at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for approval of a purchase by Enel Kansas LLC of 100% of the membership interests in Osage Wind from TradeWind Energy.

Osage Wind is developing the 150.4-MW Osage Project wind farm in Osage County, Okla. Currently, TradeWind owns 100% of the membership interests in Osage Wind.

The Osage Project is located within the balancing authority area controlled by Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. (AECI) in the southeast region, and the project’s output is fully committed to AECI under a long-term power purchase agreement. Osage Wind will own no transmission facilities other than limited interconnection facilities needed to connect the Osage Project with the AECI-controlled transmission system.

TradeWind has a principal place of business in Lenexa, Kansas. TradeWind specializes in the development of wind and solar energy projects across the U.S.

Enel Kansas is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enel Green Power North America (Enel NA). Each of Enel Kansas and Enel NA is a holding company solely with respect to qualifying facilities and exempt wholesale generators.
