EPA to Purchase BEF New Wind

May 2000 - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has entered into an agreement with the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) to purchase power from new wind resources to supply a portion of the agency's Northwest power needs. EPA is negotiating a 10-year agreement with BEF to purchase about 2.1 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of wind power annually at a premium of 2.2¢/kWh. The premium will be used to support the installation and operation of at least one, new 700-kW wind turbine, which would generate enough power on an annual basis to serve EPA's Manchester Laboratory in Port Orchard, WA. Since its establishment in 1998, BEF has negotiated the sale of about 23 average MW of green power.
