The Chinese autonomous region of Xinjiang has granted final approval to US wind company, Navajo Wind Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: CLBN), for the Xinjiang Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The approval, which was announced yesterday (May 11), is mandated by the Central Government of China through the country’s Renewable Energy Law.
The law orders that the construction of renewable energy facilities must be encouraged, and that China’s electricity grid must purchase all the electricity produced by approved facilities within its service area. The buying price is set by the State Council’s regulatory department, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).
Navajo awaits final pricing, terms, and conditions from the NDRC within the next few weeks. Details of the PPA will also be announced during the said period. The wind farm construction permit is expected to be released by September. Navajo Wind will also be finalizing current information for the Pink Sheets OTC disclosure and news service.
Navajo Wind, formerly called Caliber Energy Inc., is currently focused on developing more than 500 megawatts of clean wind energy. Its key acquisition of Guangzhou Jianinxiang Co. Ltd., a wind farm and power trading company, makes Navajo Wind one of a few companies licensed to trade electrical power in and out of China. Navajo Wind is based in Atlanta-Georgia.
