NRG's 101MW South Trent purchase receives go-ahead

US: Power generator and retailer NRG Energy has completed its purchase of the 101MW South Trent wind farm in Texas following the deal's approval by state regulators.

South Trent consists of 44 Siemens 2.3MW wind turbines near Sweetwater, Texas. It is subject to a 20-year power purchase agreement with AEP Energy Partners. NRG did not disclose the seller or the price.

The project was developed by Babcock & Brown and came online in 2009. After Babcock & Brown ran into financial difficulty, it spun off its wind assets to form a new company, Pattern Energy.

NRG announced the acquisition in March. The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) approved the sale on June 11.

South Trent becomes the fourth wind farm in NRG's portfolio. All four are located in Texas. They include the 120 MW Elbow Creek wind farm near Big Spring and the 150MW Langford wind farm near San Angelo, both of which NRG owns wholly; and the 150MW Sherbino wind farm near Fort Stockton, in which NRG has a 50% stake.
