October 2000 - According to Wind Energy Weekly, wind energy certificates will be available from a second New York project. Atlantic Renewable Energy Corp. (AREC) will sell certificates created from a 12-MW wind project under development in Fenner, New York. AREC already has one customer lined up—the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has agreed to purchase certificates representing about 2 million kWh annually for a new laboratory under construction in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. AREC expects the Fenner project to be operational by mid-2001.
In July, PG&E National Energy Group announced the sale of "Pure Wind" certificates from its 11.5-MW Madison, New York project. AREC, which also developed the Madison project, is working on a third project, a 15-MW wind project in Mill Run, Pennsylvania, scheduled for completion in early 2001.
