TVA Adding Wind Capacity

January 2003 - The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement to add 27 megawatts (MW) of wind energy capacity to the Buffalo Mountain wind park near Oliver Springs, Tennessee. Two megawatts of turbines are already operating at the site. The output of the new turbines will be added to the supply mix for TVA's Green Power Switch program through which customers can purchase 150-kWh blocks of green power for $4 per month. Currently, Green Power Switch is offered by 49 of TVA's distribution utilities.

Invenergy, a Chicago-based energy development company, will develop, construct, own, and operate the project addition, which is expected to be in operation by the end of the year.
