Scout Clean Energy (Scout), a Colorado based renewable energy developer-owner-operator, announced that they have accepted final delivery of 71 of GE's latest generation 2.8-127 onshore wind turbines for the 200 MW Sweetland Wind Project (Sweetland) in Hand County, South Dakota. Sweetland is owned and will be operated by Scout Clean Energy.

"We are pleased to have received the on-time delivery of the 71 of the latest GE wind turbines for Sweetland Wind Farm," said Michael Rucker, CEO and founder of Scout Clean Energy. "The final delivery allows for our Sweetland project to begin full construction shortly, and when commissioned later this year will add to Scout's growing contribution of carbon free, renewable energy to South Dakota."

Sweetland is expected to produce over 903,500 megawatt hours of low cost, renewable power each year, offsetting approximately 615,000 tons of annual carbon emissions. Sweetland is estimated to power 82,100 homes with carbon free electricity. GE's 2.8-127 series turbines, have been named by the American Clean Power Association (ACPA) as the most widely deployed wind turbine in the US.

"GE is proud to complete the on-time deliveries of our workhorse 2.8-127 turbines to Sweetland Wind Farm," said Vic Abate, CEO of GE's Onshore Wind business. "With more than 300 million operating hours and best in industry power performance, our fleet of 2MW turbines are helping to deliver cost effective and reliable renewable energy to the regions that need it most. Scout Clean Energy is an important partner as we work to deliver on the energy transition together."

Scout plans to manage construction of the project and has selected Blattner Energy as the Balance of Plant (BOP) Contractor. Sweetland is expected to support over 200 temporary construction jobs and 10 permanent full-time positions once the project begins operations. The economic benefits to the community are estimated to meet or exceed $35 million in new local revenues over the expected life of the Sweetland project.

Scout is a portfolio company of Brookfield Renewable, one of the world's largest publicly traded, pure-play renewable power platforms.
