240 MW of Wind Contracted in NRCO 2016 Wind Request for Information (RFI)
At the beginning of 2016, the National Renewables Cooperative Organization (NRCO) released a Request for Information (RFI) on behalf of its Members regarding wind projects across the country. Over 40 developers responded representing over 120 individual wind assets under development in the PJM, MISO, ERCOT, SPP, and Southeast markets.
Earlier this month NRCO, working with participating Members, brought 3 deals to close out of its 2016 wind RFI, totaling 240 MW of wind capacity. One of these deals was recently announced: Dairyland Power Cooperative will be purchasing 80 MW of wind generation from the Barton Wind Project, operated by Avangrid Renewables. Information regarding the two remaining private deals will be be provided when they go public.
NRCO plans to begin its 2017 wind RFI process towards the end of February 2017.
