enXco signs wind turbine supply agreement with REpower for 50 MW

These wind turbines will supplement a previous order with REpower to supply the full capacity of the 102.5 MW Shiloh IV Wind Project located in Solano County, California

San Diego, January 24, 2012 — enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company, has signed a turbine supply agreement with German turbine manufacturer REpower Systems SE for 25 MM92 2.05 MW wind turbine generators.

These wind turbines will supplement a previous order with REpower to supply the full capacity of the 102.5 MW Shiloh IV Wind Project located in Solano County, California.

Shiloh IV Wind Project is a repowering effort to upgrade older technology allowing for increased generation of clean energy with fewer wind turbines. Project development includes the removal of existing turbines installed in 1989.

enXco will develop, build, and own the Shiloh IV Wind Project while PG&E will purchase the power generated under a 25-year power purchase agreement. Turbine delivery is slated for fall of 2012, with commercial operation expected by the end of 2012.

With Shiloh IV, enXco will have developed five wind projects in the Montezuma Hills Wind Resource Area for a total of 511.5 MW in Solano County. Three of these projects (355 MW) use the REpower MM92 turbine.
