EDP Renewables, Facebook partner to develop new wind farm.

EDP Renewables, through its fully-owned subsidiary EDP Renewables North America, announces that it has secured a 139 megawatt 15-year power purchase agreement with Facebook for the energy produced from its Headwaters II Wind Farm in Randolph County, Indiana. The 200 MW Headwaters II Wind Farm will produce enough clean electricity to power the equivalent of more than 52,000 homes each year and will provide economic benefits including jobs throughout the project's construction and operation, landowner payments, and money spent in neighboring communities. Through its Headwaters I Wind Farm, also located in Randolph County that became operational in 2014, EDP Renewables has paid approximately $2.6M in cumulative payments to local governments through 2017. The addition of the Headwaters II Wind Farm will result in more tax payments contributed to the county. This PPA is a step forward for Facebook in its sustainability goal of supporting all of its operations with clean and renewable energy.
