NexGen To Build Wind Turbines For Painesville Municipal Electric


Energy, an owner and operator of distributed renewable energy systems, plans to develop, construct and operate up to 3.2 MW of commercial-scale wind turbines on multiple sites across Painesville Municipal Electric's service territory in Ohio. NexGen Energy will sell the energy generated by the turbines at a predictable rate for 10 years, giving Painesville Municipal Electric fixed-priced power, as well as a tool to help stabilize the load of the local electricity grid. ‘Distributed wind generation projects are an important part of a diversified energy portfolio that can provide numerous benefits to local communities and utilities,’ says Jeff Anthony, director of business development at the American Wind Energy Association. ‘Wind allows consumers and utilities to receive stably priced electricity even if fuel prices go up.’ Plans call for wind turbines on multiple sites in the village of North Perry, which is part of Painesville Municipal Electric's district. NexGen Energy will build six to eight turbines, which are expected to be operational by the end of the year. NexGen Energy has hired local contractors to prepare the sites and manage the construction of the turbines. SOURCE: [u][link=]NexGen Energy Partners LLC[/li
