August 2003 - AMP-Ohio, the City of Bowling Green, and Green Mountain Energy Company are partnering on a 3.6-MW wind project, which will be the first commercial-scale wind project to be built in Ohio. The two, 1.8-MW units will be located at the Wood County landfill just west of the city of Bowling Green. Plans call for the units to be interconnected to Bowling Green Municipal Utilities through an existing 12.47-kilovolt distribution circuit near the site.
The project output will be shared between AMP-Ohio and Bowling Green. Bowling Green's green pricing program collects a premium for existing renewable resources to fund future wind and solar projects. AMP-Ohio will use its share of the wind project as supply for its Nature's Energy product, which is offered to member utilities in partnership with Green Mountain.
