CVPS, GMP Sign Wind Contracts

0

Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) and Green Mountain Power (GMP) have signed contracts to purchase additional wind power from a New Hampshire wind project.

CVPS' contract is for 20% of the output of Noble Environmental Power's planned 99 MW Granite Reliable Power Windpark in Coos County, N.H., for 15 years, starting in November 2012. CVPS had previously executed a contract for 30.3% of the output of the Granite Reliable project in February and plans to execute another, subject to approval by the Vermont Public Service Board, for two-thirds of the output of Iberdrola Renewables' planned Deerfield Wind Project in Readsboro and Searsburg, Vt.

The Vermont Public Service Board approved the first Granite Reliable contract earlier this year, and the Deerfield contract is currently under review.

GMP's contract is for 7% of the Granite Reliable project for 20 years, starting in November 2012. GMP previously executed a contract for 25% of the output in February.
