Honda obtains 120 MW of wind through VPPA
Following a VPPA last September, Honda will receive 120 MW of renewable power from the recently completed Boiling Springs Wind Farm. Project owner RWE Renewables announced on Jan. 20 that the offtake is one of the largest-ever renewable energy purchases by the automotive industry.
The 148-MW Boiling Springs Wind Farm is the first onshore wind farm in Oklahoma. It is powered by 60 GE turbines and came online in late December.
"After several years of development, we are thrilled to see this project fully operational in the Southwest Power Pool (SPP), a new market for us," Silvia Ortin, COO North America of RWE said in a statement. "SPP is a highly-attractive market with considerable potential for working with new customers in the corporate, industrial and utility segments. As always, we appreciate the local support from the community and our landowners to help us bring Boiling Springs from development through construction and now to successful operation."
