US renewables developer Geronimo Energy will be selling the output of its 200-MW Prairie Wolf solar park under a virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with agribusiness giant Cargill Inc.
The project is located in Coles County, Illinois, in the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) market. The facility is expected to commence operations at the end of 2021, Geronimo said Wednesday.
The latest contract is the second VPPA that Geronimo has secured with Cargill. The two parties previously signed an agreement for a portion of the output of the 200-MW Crocker wind farm in South Dakota.
In the state of Illinois, Geronimo, a subsidiary of electric and gas utility National Grid Plc (NYSE:NGG), has developed over 400 MW of operational renewable energy projects, including the Green River and Walnut Ridge wind farms, the company added.
