  • Enel Green Power SpA (EGPW), Italy’s biggest clean-energy company, signed an agreement to receive about $400 million in funding for two U.S. wind farms.
  • A group led by JPMorgan Chase & Co. plans to fund the 150-megawatt Origin project in Oklahoma and the 200-megawatt Goodwell project, which spans both Oklahoma and Texas, according to a statement on Rome-based Enel’s website.
  • The funders will receive an equity stake with limited voting rights, allowing it to share in the two projects’ “fiscal benefits,” Enel said.
  • The funds will be awarded when the wind farms begin generating power. Origin is expected to be operational in the fourth quarter.
  • Goodwell is estimated to come online in the fourth quarter of next year. Both projects have power-purchase agreements.
