EDF Renewable Energy signed a virtual power purchase agreement to sell Kimberly-Clark Corporation with 120 MW from the 154-MW Rock Falls Wind Project in Oklahoma.
The deal is Kimberly-Clark’s first use of utility-scale renewable energy and will help the company surpass its goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent four years ahead of the original deadline of 2022.
Rock Falls Wind Project began construction in Kay and Grant Counties in northern Oklahoma in July, and is expected to reach completion in December 2017.
Rock Falls marks EDF RE’s second project in Oklahoma. In 2016, the company completed the Great Western Wind Project which supplies electricity to Google.
