E.ON is committed to the U.S. renewable energy market and is in the process of building new projects. The company has just began the construction of the Radford’s Run Wind Farm in Macon County, Illinois. E.ON has also recently signed a few agreements for the sale of renewable power.
Here are E.ON’s most recent accomplishments:
- Radford’s Run has a planned installed capacity of 278 MW, making it the second largest wind farm in Illinois. It is the third project E.ON is accomplishing in the state. Vestas will supply 139 of its 2-MW turbines, and the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2017. E.ON invested close to U.S.$500 million into Radford Run, which was formerly known as Twin Forks.
- Johnson & Johnson, the world’s biggest maker of health-care products, agreed to buy half of the output from E.ON’s 200-MW wind farm Colbeck’s Corner in the Texas Panhandle. The company signed a 12-year power purchase agreement. Colbeck’s Corner is expected to provide the equivalent of about 60 percent of Johnson & Johnson’s electricity consumption in the U.S., and 25% globally.
- Digital Realty, a global provider of data center, colocation, and interconnection solutions, also signed a long-term clean energy agreement for using 400.000 megawatt-hours of the power produced by Colbeck’s Corner annually. This is the equivalent to taking 58.000 cars off the street.
- Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE) selected E.ON Energy Services to provide asset management and balance of plant services for its Amazon Wind Farm Texas near Snyder, Texas. The 253-MW facility will sell 90% of the power generated to Amazon under a long-term contract.
- Novatus Energy signed an agreement with E.ON to manage four of its wind farms, totaling more than 700 MW across three different states.
E.ON manages, owns, or operates wind farms in seven states and in nearly every major Independent System Operator.
