The Idaho Public Utilities Commission has approved three energy sales agreements between the company and a wind developer that will build three wind farms in the Hagerman area.
The sales agreements are with Exergy Development Group of Idaho, which plans to build all three projects under the provisions of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978. The act requires electric utilities to offer to buy power produced by qualifying small-power producers or co-generators.
The three projects – Camp Reed (22.5 megawatts), Payne’s Ferry (21 MW) and Yahoo Creek (21 MW) – are scheduled to begin operating Sept. 30, 2010.
