enXco will develop, build, and own the wind project consisting of 134 GE

1.5 MW turbines while IPL will purchase the power generated under a

20-year power purchase agreement. The project, expected to be

operational by the end of 2010, will be operated and maintained by enXco

Service Corporation.

“This agreement between enXco and IPL builds on the experience our two

companies attained through the development of the 106 MW Hoosier Wind

Project in Benton County, Indiana which is currently under construction.

Both projects have excellent access to the high-voltage network in the

Midwest allowing customers in Indianapolis to benefit from two of the

premier wind-energy basins in the country. We are pleased to extend an

already successful relationship with IPL and to continue to add

renewable resources to the energy supply mix in the Upper Midwest,” said

Tristan Grimbert, president & CEO of enXco.

The Lakefield Wind Project, which is subject to the approval of the IURC

as well as the Minnesota Public Utility Commission (MPUC), is the result

of an RFP issued by IPL in December 2008.
