Marshall Wind shoots triple PPA
Three long-term agreements signed for power totalling 65MW
Marshall Wind Energy has signed three long-term power purchase agreements totalling 65MW of renewable energy with the Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission, the Kansas Power Pool and the City of Independence in Missouri’s Department of Power and Light.
Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission president and general manager Duncan Kincheloe said: “The Marshall Wind project is another notable addition to our growing renewable energy portfolio including solar, wind, landfill gas and hydropower which has been developing for over 7 years.
“We anticipate that by the end of 2016 we may have as much as 77MW, representing about 14% of our 2014 summer peak load for the Missouri Public Energy Pool.”
KPP general manager Mark Chesney said: “With this purchase power agreement, nearly 20% of the Kansas Power Pool’s load will be served by renewable energy.”
Power & Light director Leon Daggett said: “ “With the Marshall Wind power purchase, the City of Independence’s renewable electric supply portfolio will increase from 5% to over 13% thereby meeting the City Council’s goal of 10% by 2018.”
