Washington, D.C., January 23, 2012 — Pepco Holdings, Inc. announced its subsidiary Delmarva Power will receive 38 MW of wind energy and associated renewable energy credits from the recently completed Chestnut Flats wind facility in south central Pennsylvania.
Delmarva Power signed a 20-year power purchase agreement in 2008 for land-based wind power as part of its renewable energy portfolio for meeting Delaware's clean energy goals, which require 25 percent of the company's energy supply to come from clean sources by 2025.
The 38-MW Chestnut Flats wind farm is located in Logan Township, Blair County, northwest of Altoona, Pa. The project features 19 wind turbines, manufactured by Gamesa, each having 2 MW of rated capacity.
Delmarva Power will purchase 100 percent of Chestnut Flats' output.
