Shady Oaks wind plant

As part of its market entry into the US, Mainstream acquired a number of late stage development projects.  Mainstream continued the development of these projects and the Shady Oaks wind farm at 110 MW was successfully acquired by Goldwind USA after its successful submission to the Illinois Power Agency’s competitive process.  Mainstream and Goldwind had partnered to participate in this process.

The project is governed by a 20 year renewable energy offtake agreement from ComEd through the Illinois Power Agency’s long term procurement plan and will be Goldwind’s second turbine project in the United States, following its installation of turbines in Pipestone, Minnesota in January 2010.

After the sale of Shady Oaks, Mainstream continued to play a central role in the project through the development and construction stages to assist Goldwind in delivering the project through to commercial operation.
