Pattern Energy Completes 150 MW Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge

California-based Pattern Energy has announced it has completed construction on the 150 MW Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge project in Benton County, Indiana.

Fowler Ridge-2The 150 MW Fowler Ridge wind farm will provide 100% of the electricity generated to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and will be used to power the company’s datacenters.

Amazon announced back in January of 2015 that it had invested in the Fowler Ridge wind farm, signing a 13 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Financial close for the project was met in May of that year, at the same time as Siemens was announced as the wind turbine manufacturer for the project, supplying 65 2.3 MW wind turbines and 67 transformers.

“AWS has a long-term commitment to achieve 100% renewable energy usage for our global infrastructure footprint, and we continue to make progress towards this goal,” said Jerry Hunter, Vice President, Infrastructure at AWS. “We’re very excited to announce with Pattern Energy that the Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge is now live and producing electricity, bringing a new source of clean energy to the grids that power our datacenters.”

“It’s a privilege to team with AWS on the Amazon Wind Farm Fowler Ridge, demonstrating the strong and growing appetite for wind power from the country’s leading corporations,” said Mike Garland, President and CEO of Pattern Energy. “This facility was completed on schedule and we are beginning 2016 with all 16 of our wind power facilities fully operational. Since our IPO we have grown the portfolio by 119%, underscoring the value of our strategic relationship with Pattern Development and our ability to execute attractive third-party acquisitions. Our strong platform of fully-contracted power facilities, combined with our identified ROFO acquisitions pipeline totaling 1,270 MW, puts Pattern Energy in an excellent position to continue growing its fleet and quarterly dividend.”
