Spinning Spur Wind Three LLC, which is building a 194-MW wind farm in Texas, on Nov. 26 filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission a notice of self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator.

The company is indirectly wholly-owned by EDF Renewable Energy Inc. (EDF-RE). Spinning Spur Three will own and operate a 194-MW (nameplate) capacity wind facility now under construction in Oldham County, Texas.
