EDF Renewables North America announced today that the 80 megawatt Copenhagen Wind Project is fully operational and delivering electricity. The wind farm consists of 40 wind turbines manufactured by Vestas and is located in Lewis and Jefferson counties in upstate New York. The produced electricity will be delivered to the Narragansett Electric Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Grid via a 15-year PPA.

“We are pleased to join the ranks of leaders in New York wind and support the State’s renewable energy target of 50 percent renewables by 2030. Through Copenhagen Wind, which was developed under a model of true local partnership, we also cemented a long-term relationship with National Grid to supply affordable, reliable wind power to its Rhode Island customers,” said Jacob Susman, Vice President, Head of Origination at EDF Renewables. “The Project is yet another great example of how wind power provides an economic boost not just in the Wind Belt, but also on the coasts, through the creation of local jobs, tax revenue, and recurring landowner lease payments.”

The expected electricity generated at full capacity is enough to meet the consumption of up to 35,000 average homes.  This is equivalent to avoiding more than 177,000 metric tons of CO? emissions annually which represents the greenhouse gas emissions from 37,500 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.
