The agreement to sell the remainder of Sempra Renewables, a subsidiary of Sempra Energy, includes the Black Oak Getty Wind project in Minnesota and the Apple Blossom Wind project in Michigan, as well as its interests in the following projects jointly owned with BP Wind Energy: Auwahi Wind in Hawaii (wind and battery storage), Flat Ridge 2 Wind in Kansas, Mehoopany Wind in Pennsylvania, Cedar Creek 2 Wind in Colorado, and Fowler Ridge 2 Wind in Indiana. AEP also will acquire all of the Sempra Renewables wind projects currently in development.
