Document Description
NOTE: Extended Per Lead The project involves "repowering" one of the two windfarms at the project site. Ninety-one wind turbines and their related infrastructure would be removed, to be replaced with up to 21 turbines and their related infrastructure. The make and model of the new turbine has not yet been decided, but they would likely be Gamesa G90 2.0 MW or Siemens 2.3-101 2.3 MW models. Installation of these turbines would increase the nameplate generating capacity of the repowered area from 29.1 MW to approximately 42 MW and increase energy production by approximately 38 percent.
