Houston, Texas based Sempra U.S. Gas and Power has expanded its holdings with the purchase of the Apple Blossom wind project in Michigan. No sale price was announced but the purchase of the 100-MW wind farm was made from Geronimo Energy LLC. It’s the second Geronimo sale to Sempra.
Construction on the wind farm won’t begin until later in the year and the project is expected to enter operation in 2017.
When the 100-megawatt (MW) Apple Blossom is completed, Sempra U.S. Gas & Power, along with its affiliates and joint-venture partners, will have wind facilities in eight states totaling more than 1,300 MW of generating capacity.
Located in Huron County, Mich., the Apple Blossom wind farm will generate enough clean, renewable power for approximately 38,000 Michigan homes. Construction is expected to begin at the wind farm site in fall 2016.
