The California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has approved a new wind contract for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) that contributes to the statewide target of 20% renewables by 2010.

Through its power purchase agreement (PPA) with PPM Energy's Klondike III, PG&E will procure 38% of the wind facility's total capacity, approximately 85 MW, and PG&E will accept deliveries equal to approximately 265 GWh per year. The intermittent generation of this wind project will be firmed and shaped by PPM, which will deliver energy in 7×24 blocks to PG&E.

The project is from PG&E's 2006 renewables portfolio standard (RPS) solicitation, and represents the first out-of-state facility to achieve commercial operation and contribute to a California utility's renewable energy targets.
