January 25 (Renewables Now) - Allete Clean Energy, part of US energy company Allete Inc (NYSE:ALE), on Tuesday said its 303-MW Caddo Wind farm in southern Oklahoma is now up and running.

The wind park is delivering its output to McDonald’s Corp (NYSE:MCD), Hormel Foods (NYSE:HRL) and Oshkosh Corp (NYSE:OSK), a manufacturer of vehicles and equipment for civilian and military use, under separate power purchase agreements (PPAs).

Caddo adds to Allete Clean Energy’s 303-MW Diamond Spring Wind facility in Oklahoma, which is also serving Fortune 500 companies, and brings the company’s wind capacity to over 1,300 MW.

The clean energy company said Caddo has low energy costs thanks to the deployment of wind turbines that qualify for the safe harbour provision of federal production tax credits. It added it holds an inventory of safe harbour turbines and is studying opportunities to put more of them to use.
