Case Study 1

Campbell County Wind Farm (“CCWF”)

SUMMARY:

  • 95MW late-stage wind development
  • Located in Campbell County, South Dakota
  • Being developed by Dakota Plains Energy, LLC (“DPE”) and a major, privately owned EPC company, the project was sold to strategic investor, Con Edison Development

CHALLENGE:

  • DPE actively developing project since 2008
  • However, DPE needed “wind experts” to help them further the development of the project, take on the financial modeling and secure a Power Purchase Agreement

SOLUTION:

  • RedWind conducted due diligence on the project to assess the work to date, and develop a strategy to finish the project
  • Next, RedWind conducted financial modeling to assess the competitive nature of the wind and project
  • We also conducted wind turbine technical evaluations to help drive competitiveness on pricing
  • We then leveraged this work to solidify an off-take arrangement, commencing both a reverse RFP and responding to extensive RFPs
  • Consulted on all aspects of the project

RESULT:

  • CCWF won the RFP bid process and has procured a Power Purchase Agreement with Basin Electric Power Cooperative
  • The project achieved commercial operation in Q4 2015 and was sold to a northeast utility
