Navitas Selling Wind Certificates

September 2001 - Navitas Energy, an independent power producer and an affiliate of wind developer Northern Alternative Energy, is selling WindWatts green energy certificates on the Internet. Each "green tag certificate" represents one MWh of wind generation and is sold for $15, or 1.5¢/kWh. The certificates represent the environmental attributes of the power generated from two Minnesota-based wind projects commissioned in mid-1998: the 11.25-MW Lakota Ridge project and the 11.88-MW Shaockatan Hills project.

According to the State Energy Office, the energy output of the projects is being purchased by Xcel Energy (formerly Northern States Power) to meet a legislative requirement to build or contract for 425 MW of wind power by the end of 2001. Navitas claims that it retains the rights to the wind energy attributes and only the commodity energy is being sold to Xcel.
