Maryland Government and Universities Commit to Wind and Solar

December 2009 - Governor Martin O'Malley announced that the state government and University System of Maryland have committed to 20-year power purchase agreements to buy electricity from four renewable energy projects to be built over the next four years. The four facilities are expected to provide 23 percent of the power used by the state offices, colleges and universities.

The electricity will be sourced from three wind farms in Keyser, West Virginia (US Windforce - 55 MW), Oakland, Maryland (Synergics - 10 MW), and Delaware Bay, Delaware (Bluewater Wind - 55 MW), and a solar farm in Frederick County, Maryland (Constellation Energy Group - 13 MW).
