NREL Purchases Wind Power

September 2001 - The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has entered into an agreement with Xcel Energy to use wind power to meet about 10% of the laboratory's annual electricity needs. Under the three-year contract, NREL will purchase nearly 2 million kWh of wind energy each year through the utility's Windsource program at a cost of about $50,000 annually. The NREL purchase is one component of the U.S. Department of Energy's commitment to the new Federal Green Power Partnership.
