Wind power project development company, based in Oslo, Norway.

The business concept is to develop wind power projects from greenfield or early phase development, to a stage where all required permits are in place, technical feasability studies are performed and the project can be realized on the international market.

Financed by a large Swedish/US green investment fund

Extend activities to include US, Poland and Sweden – and possibly other fast growing markets.

why the panhandle
Why the Panhandle

Best wind conditions in Texas

Large areas of suitable land

General positive attitude among the land owners and the population in general

Perfectly located in the cross roads of the ERCOT, SPP and WECC grid areas

A region in need for new industries

Why the Panhandle




Transmission Expansion-Plans laid for specific transmission lines - Dovetails with Scandia’s Phase II & Phase III strategies

the challenges every developer faces
The challenges every developer faces
  • The grid is a huge constraint in the ERCOT and SPP grid systems.
  • Large consumption in the south
  • Weak grid into the Panhandle
  • The Panhandle loop will only cover the projects already under planning

The strategy is as follows:

  • Make the projects so large that they will attract new lines into the region
  • State of the art project documentation for financial closing
    • Detailled wind assessment program
    • Very selective turbine choice
    • Bankable land lease agreements
    • Commercial business model where all owners have the same exit strategy

Development phase

Operational phase

10% ownership in the development

Individual land lease agreement payments

  • Ownership in the project company
    • Land owners put in an exclusive right for the company to develop their land
    • No payments to the land owner during the development phase
    • Payment at joint exit point
    • Estimate at least 10 times the payment for this model compared to a standard option fee per acre payment assuming a 5 years development phase
  • Royalty payments for each turbine placed on your land normal for the region beginning when the project is being built

Take over by large utility(ies)



the way forward
The way forward

We suggest the land owners form a group of 3-5 people given the power of attorney to negotiate on the land owners behalf

The group select a lawyer representing them in the negotiations

We are willing to cover the lawyer costs up to an amount agreed upon between the parties

We hope the total process should not last longer than 3 months

When the agreement are finished negotiated, the negotiating group will present the agreement to the remaining land owners for signature.
