Delmarva Power to buy 38 MW of wind energy from Chestnut Flats wind facility

 

By
Greentech Lead Team:

Pepco Holdings, an energy delivery company in the Mid-Atlantic region,
announced that its subsidiary Delmarva Power will purchase 38 megawatts (MW) of
wind energy from the Chestnut Flats wind facility in south central
Pennsylvania.

The
38-megawatt land-based wind farm is manufactured by Gamesa and owned by enXco,
an EDF Energies Nouvelles Company.

“The
Chestnut Flats wind farm is the third of our land-based wind procurements to
come online. This is another example of working regionally to make a difference
in delivering clean, green energy. We support renewable standards, and we
recognize it takes a long-term plan to achieve these ambitious goals,” said
Gary R. Stockbridge, president, Delmarva Power Region.

Delmarva
Power will purchase 100 percent of Chestnut Flats’ output as per a 20-year
Power Purchase Agreement. The PPA is the 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 Chestnut
Flats wind farm is located in Logan Township, Blair County, northwest of
Altoona, Pa. The project features 19 wind turbines, each having two megawatts
of rated capacity.

Recently,
Pepco Holdings announced
its subsidiary Pepco Energy Services signed an $11 million contract with
Virginia Department of Military Affairs to implement a comprehensive energy
savings performance project.
