first_imgOregon utility PGE, NextEra complete wind component of hybrid Wheatridge renewable complex FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renewables Now:Portland General Electric Company, or PGE, and NextEra Energy Resources LLC have brought online a 300-MW wind farm that will be part of a larger hybrid power complex in Oregon.Dubbed the Wheatridge Renewable Energy Facility, the complex is being built near Lexington, Morrow County, and will incorporate wind, solar and energy storage technologies. After switching on the wind component, the partners will put on stream a 50-MW photovoltaic (PV) park and a 30-MW battery storage system by the end of next year, PGE said on Tuesday.The Wheatridge wind farm is equipped with 120 General Electric turbines with capacities of 2.3 MW and 2.5 MW. Early development works for the project were carried out by Swaggart Wind Power LLC, an affiliate of MAP Energy.NextEra purchased the development rights for the wind project in 2017 and later expanded it to include solar and battery storage after PGE joined. The partners have agreed for PGE to own 100 MW of the wind farm, while a unit of NextEra Energy Resources will own the rest and sell the output to PGE under 30-year power purchase agreements (PPAs).The NextEra Energy Resources’ subsidiary will take care of building and operating the combined facility. The duo is yet to make its final choice on equipment for the PV and battery storage installations. PGE estimates that its ownership in the scheme will cost it some USD 155 million (EUR 127.8m).[Veselina Petrova]More: PGE, NextEra power up 300-MW wind farm in Oregonlast_img read more
