Wind energy project signs two PPAs

BP Wind Energy signed two long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) totaling 105 MW from its proposed Mehoopany Wind Farm in Pennsylvania.

One PPA is for 75 MW with Old Dominion Electric Co-op (ODEC) and a second with Southern Maryland Electric Co-op Inc. (SMECO) for 30 MW. The PPAs were negotiated by the National Renewables Cooperative Organization (NRCO).

Mehoopany is expected to generate up to 144 MW of electricity and will use 90 GE 1.6 MW wind turbines. The wind farm will be owned and operated by BP Wind Energy.

Construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter 2011 and be fully operational by Q4 2012.
