Second Wind Project for Pennsylvania Market

March 2001 - A consortium of companies and organizations announced that they will partner to build a 15-megawatt (MW) wind energy project in Fayette County, Pennsylvania that will provide a new source of green power to the state's competitive electricity market. The Mill Run Wind Project will be built by Atlantic Renewable Energy Corporation and marketed to retail customers by Community Energy, Inc.

The Mill Run project is the second, large commercial wind project to be constructed for Pennsylvania's competitive power market — Green Mountain Energy Company dedicated a 10.4-MW project last spring. The new project will be partially funded by ratepayers through the Sustainable Development Fund, which was created in the 1998 PECO restructuring settlement and expanded in the recent Unicom-PECO merger order.
