Seattle Inks Wind Energy Deal

September 2001 - The Seattle City Council unanimously approved a plan for its municipal utility to obtain about 5% of its power supply from wind resources. Starting January 1, Seattle City Light will purchase 50 megawatts (MW) of wind power from PacifiCorp Power Marketing Inc. The power will be generated at the Stateline project, a 262-MW wind plant under construction along the Washington-Oregon border. The city's wind energy purchase will increase over time to 100 MW in August 2002 and to as much as 175 MW by August 2004.

According to Mayor Paul Schell, the wind energy agreement moves the city more than halfway to its goal of obtaining 100 average megawatts from new renewable resources by 2011.
