Three Wind Facilities To Boost New York State's Wind Capacity by 70 Percent

July 2, 2007

Noble Environmental Power has become financial partners with GE Energy Financial Services in building three wind generating facilities that will increase wind capacity in the state of New York by more than 70 percent. Noble Environmental Power will construct, operate, and manage the facilities, which will deliver a total of 282 megawatts (MW) of electricity to the wholesale power grid controlled by the New York Independent Operating System. The projects are expected to begin operating between October and December of this year.

The three projects include:

Together, the three projects will produce enough electricity to power more than 93,000 homes per year. The projects will also generate renewable energy certificates, 95 percent of which will be sold under 10-year contracts to the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). NYSERDA purchases the certificates to meet New York's renewable portfolio standard, which requires that 25 percent of the state's power come from renewable sources by 2013.
