First contract for domestic wind supply

Google Translate

The first contract for delivery of wind power to a domestic consumer has been signed in Sweden between utility Vattenfall and Fredrik Granlund of Gnesta, some 50 miles north of Stockholm. In December Granlund requested a quotation from Vattenfall for supply of wind generated electricity to meet his annual needs of 3100 kWh. By April Vattenfall offered wind electricity at a price premium of SKK 0.07/kWh. According to the final contract, signed in May, if no wind power is available hydro may be substituted. Wind turbines currently owned by Vattenfall produce some 10 million kWh a year, so the utility could make similar contracts with around 3500 private customers
