Invenergy Snares Another Big Electrical Power Deal

Invenergy, the Chicago-based wind energy company with operations throughout Oklahoma announced this week the signing of a 120 MW wind power purchase agreement to provide EM with renewable energy largely from its Gunsight Wind Energy Center located in Texas. Energy from the project will be delivered into the Electric Reliability Council of Texas regional electricity grid. With the addition of Gunsight, Invenergy will operate more than 1,700 MW of power plants in the State.

This latest announcement came just a few weeks after Invenergy announced a 225 MW wind power purchase deal with Google in northeast Oklahoma. Invenergy is one of six renewable energy companies Google partnered with for a total of 842 MW of renewable energy across three countries. But Google’s power purchase agreement with Invenergy is the largest. Under the Google Deal, power from the Bethel Wind Energy Facility in Texas will provide electricity to the Southwest Power Pool.

Invenergy has been operational in Oklahoma for several years beginning with its Centennial wind farm located near Fort Supply in 2007.
