SAN DIEGO (December 14, 2017) – EDF Renewable Energy (EDF RE) announced today that the 154 megawatt (MW) Rock Falls Wind Project (Project) has begun commercial operation. Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB) signed an agreement earlier this year with EDF RE for 120 MW of generation which marks Kimberly-Clark’s first utility scale use of renewable energy.
Rock Falls Wind Project, located in Kay and Grant Counties in northern Oklahoma, consists of wind turbines and various components manufactured in the USA. The project has created more than 150 jobs since start of construction in July 2017 along with millions of dollars injected into the local economy.
“We applaud America’s corporate sector and companies like Kimberly-Clark, who through the purchase of wind energy demonstrate leadership in the drive for a low-carbon economy,” said Ryan Pfaff, Executive Vice President for EDF Rene
wable Energy.Their commitment allowed Rock Falls to proceed, providing an economic boost to the Oklahoma economy, through new construction and operations jobs, expanded tax base, and recurring, long-term income for participating landowners.”
“We are proud to partner with EDF Renewable Energy on the Rock Falls project, which marks a significant step in Kimberly-Clark’s Energy and Climate strategy,” said Lisa Morden, Global Head of Sustainability, Kimberly-Clark.
Kimberly-Clark operates a number of manufacturing facilities across North America (and other parts of the world), including a tissue and towel manufacturing facility in Jenks, Oklahoma, which produces products for the Kleenex, Scott, Cottonelle and Viva brands. “As a point of comparison, the electricity purchased from the Rock Falls wind project would offset 1.5 times the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the electricity consumption at the Jenks, Oklahoma manufacturing plant,” said Morden.
Rock Falls marks EDF RE’s second project in Oklahoma. In 2016, the Company completed the Great Western Wind Project which supplies Google with its output of electricity.
EDF RE is the #1 developer among corporate buyers with 930 MWs contracted, which demonstrates the trust that environmentally-conscious companies place in EDF RE to deliver value. Kimberly-Clark joins the Company’s growing North America portfolio of corporate purchasers including Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, Walmart and Yahoo.
EDF Renewable Services, the leading provider of renewable operations and maintenance services in North America, will provide balance-of-plant operations and maintenance for the facility.
EDF Renewable Energy is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 9 GW of wind, solar, storage, biomass, and biogas projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
SAN DIEGO (January 31, 2018) – EDF Renewable Energy (EDF RE) announced today that the 200 megawatt (MW) Red Pine Wind Project (Project) is fully operational and delivering electricity. Consisting of 100 wind turbines manufactured by Vestas, Red Pine interconnects to Northern States Power’s Hawks Nest Lake Substation and generates enough clean wind energy to meet the consumption of 92,000 average Minnesota homes, according to US Energy Information Administration.
The Project, located in Lincoln County in southwest Minnesota, marks the Company’s 11th wind facility to be developed in the state. Kate O’Hair, vice president of development, north region commented, “The support of the Ivanhoe community has been tremendous. We are pleased to recognize the positive impact with over $18 million in supplies, equipment, utilities and fuel sourced from local businesses during the construction phase and more than $20,000 contributed to local organizations to assist in their missions.”
The Red Pine Project will further invest an estimated $1 million annually during its production life to the county and townships through the Minnesota Wind Energy Tax Production.

SAN DIEGO (November 30, 2017) – EDF Renewable Energy has signed an agreement to supply Google, a subsidiary company of Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL) with 200 megawatts (MW) of wind energy generated from the new Glaciers Edge Wind Project in Iowa.
Glaciers Edge Wind Project, located in Cherokee County in the northwest portion of the state, is expected to create more than 150 jobs during the construction phase along with millions of dollars injected into the local economy. Once the wind farm comes online, anticipated in December 2019, the additional capacity will help Google reach its goal of purchasing enough renewable energy to match its energy consumption for global operations.
Dai Owen, Director, Power Marketing for EDF RE commented, “The strong U.S. wind market relies in part on America’s corporate sector and companies like Google, who through the purchase of wind energy demonstrate leadership in the drive for a low-carbon economy. Their commitment allows Glaciers Edge to proceed, providing an economic boost to the Iowa economy, through new construction and operations jobs, expanded tax base, and recurring, long-term income for participating landowners.”
“Renewables from projects like Glaciers Edge bring value to our business as we scale and accelerate investment in the communities where we operate,” said Gary Demasi, Google’s director of global infrastructure. “With solar and wind declining dramatically in cost and propelling significant employment growth, the transition to clean energy is driving unprecedented economic opportunity and doing so faster than we ever anticipated.”
EDF RE and Google forged a relationship in December 2012, when Google made an approximate $200 million equity investment in EDF RE’s Spinning Spur Wind Project, located in Oldham County, Texas. The business partnership progressed in 2016 with the power purchase agreement for the Great Western Wind Project in Oklahoma which supplies Google with 225 MW of clean electricity.
EDF RE is a leading developer among corporate buyers of renewables which demonstrates the trust that environmentally-conscious companies place in EDF RE to deliver value. The Company’s growing North America portfolio of corporate purchasers includes Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, Walmart and Yahoo.
Glaciers Edge will bring the EDF RE’s portfolio of wind project development in Iowa to 1.1 GW.
