The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has begun transmitting 300 MW of wind power to its customers. The power is sourced from Iberdrola Renewables Inc.'s Streator Cayuga Ridge wind park in Livingston County, Ill.
This marks the first delivery under seven contracts TVA recently signed to purchase up to 1,380 MW of renewable wind energy from the Midwest.
The next delivery of wind power is expected to occur this fall from Horizon Wind Energy LLC's 115 MW Pioneer Prairie wind farm in Howard and Mitchell counties in Iowa.
