CNBC reports that Enel, an Italian manufacturer and distributor of electricity and gas, has started operations at the 185-megawatt HillTopper wind farm in Illinois via its U.S. renewable business Enel Green Power North America.
Through power purchase agreements, the facility will sell power to Bloomberg LP, General Motors and Constellation, an Exelon business. Power produced from a 17-megawatt (MW) section of the site will be sold to Bloomberg. Energy from a 100 MW section will be bought by General Motors.
