Iowa became the first state to adopt a renewable portfolio standard with the passage of a law requiring its major utilities to own or contract 105 MW of renewable energy in 1983. Since meeting that requirement in 1999 they have been leading the nation producing more than one third of their power generation from wind energy, substantially exceeding their initial requirements.
The Glaciers Edge Wind Project is a 200-megawatt commercial scale wind energy facility located in Cherokee County, Iowa. The Project will safely generate enough clean, renewable electricity to power more than 60,000 households. The energy interconnects onto the Raun to Highland 345kV transmission line owned by Mid-American Energy just north of Marcus, Iowa. The Project consists of a mix of General Electric 2.3, 2.51 and 2.82MW Wind Turbine Generators and ancillary equipment. The power generated has been contractually sold to Google, Inc. under a long term power purchase agreement. EDF Renewables owns and operates the project and General Electric will initially provide the Operations & Maintenance Services.
EDF Renewables has a toll-free number dedicated to address inquiries about payments, change of address, and project related questions or concerns. A dedicated EDF Renewables representative will process and route your inquiry to the appropriate resource(s) that will be able to assist you. All inquiries will be documented and available upon request.
The helpline is open Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm Central Time, excluding major holidays. If a representative is unavailable, please leave a detailed message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.
