Salt River Project has signed an agreement to purchase 100 percent of the electricity generated from the newest wind energy farm planned for Arizona.

The Yavapai Wind Project, being built by NextEra Energy Resources, LLC, will be located about 25 miles south of Seligman and Interstate 40 in Yavapai County.

The 25-year contract calls for the delivery of 99.2 megawatts of energy to SRP by Dec. 31, 2012, pending the necessary approvals.

Salt River Project also has the option to purchase at a later date approximately 20 megawatts of solar energy from a planned photovoltaic facility that could be built near the project’s wind turbines.

The project’s nearly 100 megawatts is about enough energy to power more than 22,500 average residential homes.
