June 2003 - The New York Power Authority (NYPA), a state-owned power supplier for state agencies, municipal utilities, and rural electric cooperatives, is in the final stages of negotiations with two wind project developers to purchase up to 50 MW of wind energy beginning in 2005. The Authority plans to include the wind energy in a portfolio of renewable power to be supplied to state government customers under an executive order requiring state agencies to use renewable energy to meet 10% of their electricity needs by 2005 and 20% by 2010. NYPA may also offer the wind power to other interested customers.
