Sponsor: The Mehoopany Wind Farm is owned 100 percent and will be operated by BP Wind Energy.

Site Location: Approximately a 9,000-acre site in Wyoming County some 20 miles northwest of Scranton (in Noxen, Forkston, Mehoopany and Eaton townships), Pennsylvania.

The Project: The Mehoopany Wind Farm will utilize 90 GE wind turbines each with a rated capacity of 1.6 megawatts (MW) and will generate 144 MW of electrical power. The wind turbines have a hub height of 328 feet and a rotor diameter of 271 feet.

The wind farm is expected to be commercially operational in the fourth quarter of 2012. When complete, the Mehoopany Wind Farm will generate electricity to power over 40,000 average American homes annually.

Transmission: Above-ground 115kV transmission lines for the project will be constructed on the site and will interconnect into the existing Mehoopany substation at the Procter and Gamble facility in Washington township.

Power Sales: A total of 105 MW of the power output from the Mehoopany Wind Farm has been sold under two power purchase agreements; one PPA is for 75 MW with Old Dominion Electric Cooperative, and a second with Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative Inc. for 30 MW. BP Wind Energy is marketing the remaining capacity to other customers in the Northeast U.S. merchant market.
