Lindahl is Enel’s first project in North Dakota and will be able to generate approximately 625 GWh each year

Overall investment in the construction of the new facility amounted to over 220 million US dollars

Rome, April 27th, 2017 – Enel S.p.A. (“Enel”), through its subsidiary Enel Green Power North America, Inc. (“EGPNA”), has started operations of Lindahl wind farm, which is Enel’s first project in the state of North Dakota.

“The completion of Lindahl furthers our strong growth in the US,” said Rafael Gonzalez, Head of Enel Green Power North America. “We are proud to be a part of growing North Dakota’s energy economy and look forward to contributing our expertise and clean energy to the sustainable development of the local community.”

Lindahl has an installed capacity of 150 MW and can generate approximately 625 GWh annually, equivalent to the energy consumption needs of more than 50,000 U.S. households, while avoiding the emission of about 450,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.

The overall investment in the construction of Lindahl amounted to over 220 million US dollars. The wind farm is owned by EGPNA Renewable Energy Partners, LLC (“EGPNA REP”), an equally owned joint venture between EGPNA and GE (NYSE: GE) unit GE Energy Financial Services. Lindahl sells its energy and related renewable credits under a bundled, long-term power purchase agreement with Basin Electric Power Cooperative.

Lindahl is the second EGPNA wind farm to begin operations this year, following the completion at the end of March of the 400 MW Cimarron Bend wind farm, which is the largest in Enel’s global wind portfolio.

EGPNA is present in 23 US states and two Canadian provinces with more than 3.3 GW of managed capacity, spread across four different renewable energy technologies: wind, solar, geothermal and hydropower.
