Apple Blossom marks Geronimo Energy’s second wind farm sale to Sempra U.S. Gas & Power. The previously sold Black Oak Getty Wind Farm, located in Stearns County, Minnesota, is currently under construction.
“Geronimo Energy is pleased to work with Sempra U.S. Gas & Power on a second wind farm project in the Midwestern United States,” Blake Nixon, Geronimo Energy President said. “Sempra U.S. Gas & Power brings impressive wind energy construction and operating expertise and has an aligned mission with Geronimo Energy’s farmer-friendly and community-focused approach.”
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to acquire, build and operate the Apple Blossom wind project in the state of Michigan as it continues to position itself as a wind energy leader,” said Kevin C. Sagara, president of renewables for Sempra U.S. Gas & Power. “The acquisition of the Apple Blossom wind project enables our company to continue to invest in the development, construction and operation of renewable energy infrastructure. We look forward to providing Michigan with a stable supply of clean, renewable energy and becoming a long-term partner with the local community through the development and operation of this project.”
Apple Blossom is expected to begin construction the fall of 2016 and enter into operation in 2017.
