Enel signs new PPAs with Facebook & Adobe

Enel signs new PPAs with Facebook & Adobe

Facebook and Adobe will share power generated from the Rattlesnake Creek Wind Project, the developer of the under-construction Northeast Nebraska wind farm announced Monday.

In November 2017, the social networking giant signed a 200-MW power purchase agreement (PPA) tied to the particular project.

Facebook has announced plans to expand its data center being built near the Omaha suburb of Papillion.

EGP now says software company Adobe Systems will buy 10MW of Rattlesnake Creek's output through a bundled PPA running through the 2019-28 period.

Rattlesnake Creek, which is EGPNA's first Nebraska wind facility, is now under construction and is expected to start operations by the end of 2018.

Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ:ATVI) Stake Lowered by Investec Asset Management LTD
Taking a little deeper look into Activision Blizzard, Inc ., the current price is $71.05, with the latest volume of 8,278,549. The company reported $0.94 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.92 by $0.02.

In the same release, Antonio Cammisecra, head of Enel's Global Renewable Energies Division, said the company was excited it was able to find a solution that suited both Adobe and Facebook. "Grid-scale renewable energy purchases are a key part of meeting our Science Based Targets and are critically important in decarbonising US grids", said Vince Digneo, sustainability strategist, Adobe.

Rattlesnake Creek is a $430 million wind farm planned for a 32,000-acre area in Dixon County, between the towns of Allen, Emerson and Wakefield, by Enel Green Power North America Inc., a subsidiary of the multinational Enel Group.

The company will invest $430m in the wind farm.

"The people and partners that attracted us to Papillion continue to deliver with talented workers, access to clean renewable energy, and excellent access to fiber". Germany's Nordex group installed a much-increased 806MW in the United States past year, according to the American Wind Energy Association, and has its name attached to several big projects under construction - including E.ON's 201MW Stella in Texas.

Enel, through its US renewable company Enel Green Power North America, Inc. Strategic energy management services company Competitive Energy Services (CES) acted as Adobes partner in bringing this power purchase agreement to fruition. In 2017, the company was the fastest growing renewable energy company in the U.S., bringing approximately 1.2 GW of capacity online. Through corporate power purchase agreements, Enel Green Power enables companies to capture business value, while also tackling climate change.
