Pennsylvania start on 10 MW wind plant

Construction started on what will be the largest wind plant in Pennsylvania -- and one of the largest in the eastern US -- on December 1. The 10.4 MW facility, on an old coal strip near Garrett in the mountainous southwest of the state, is to be completed on Earth Day 2000, April 22. Nordex turbines are being installed (Windower Monthly, December 1999). The output will be bought by GreenMountain.com, which sells renewable energy to more than 60,000 Pennsylvania customers. Distributed Generation Systems Inc of Evergreen, Colorado, is developing it and American National Wind Power Inc -- part of National Wind Power of the UK and American National Power of Texas -- will own and operate the plant. The wind farm will not, however, be the first in the Keystone State. Conectiv Energy, the Delaware utility, and Energy Unlimited say they will have two turbines -- also to provide green electricity to the state's lively green market -- installed near the town of Hazleton by the start of 2000.
