Georgia Power to buy 250 MW of wind energy from EDP Renewables

Georgia Power will source 250 MW of wind energy from EDP Renewables North America's wind farms in southwest Oklahoma. The wind energy purchased through these contracts will provide enough electricity at peak to power more than 50,000 Georgia homes.

Georgia Power will begin receiving the wind power on January 1, 2016. This agreement is expected to deliver cost savings to Georgia Power customers over the life of the contract and is the latest step in Georgia Power's ongoing effort to procure renewable energy in the most cost-effective manner for customers.

Georgia Power serves 2.4 million customers in all but four of Georgia's 159 counties.
