The Eva Creek Wind farm, owned by Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA), has delivered its first power to the grid in Alaska.
Eva Creek, a 25MW wind farm located in Healy in the US state of Alaska, is projected to produce 76,686,000KWh of renewable energy a year, providing electricity to over 9,100 interior homes.
The largest wind power project in Alaska is expected to commence commercial production in mid-November 2012. The project is estimated to cost about $93m.
Eva Creek consists of 12 REpower turbines.
GVEA expects Eva Creek to integrate into the company's system and reduce its dependence on oil.
At an oil price of $90 a barrel, Eva Creek is expected to save $13.6m in costs over the next 20 years.
