The project's sole offtake is Tri-State, a non-profit energy supply cooperative. EDP Renováveis, SA (“EDPR”), the world's fourth-largest renewable energy producer, has begun commercial operation of the 104 MW Crossing Trails wind farm through its affiliate EDP Renewables North America LLC has started commercial operation of the 104 MW Crossing Trails wind farm. The corporation signed a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with the non-profit energy supply cooperative Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association for this wind farm (Tri-State). The project, based in Colorado, is made up of twenty 4.3 MW wind turbines and five 3.6 MW turbines. These are among the most advanced systems ever installed in the region, distinguished by their reliability and cost-effectiveness. Annually, Crossing Trails can generate enough energy to fuel the equivalent of approximately 45,000 homes in Colorado. More than 100 employees were active in the project's commissioning, which increased jobs and created permanent roles to run and manage the wind farm. Furthermore, it will have a 12 million dollar effect on local municipalities and will return more than 20 million dollars to landowners during its life cycle.
