WP&L Moves to Meet Increased Demand with Wind Power

Madison, Wisconsin [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The utility supply plan for 2006 through 2013 announced last August by Wisconsin Power and Light (WP&L) called for the addition of 250 megawatts (MW) of baseload generation and 100 MW of wind. But WP&L has increased the size of the baseload plant to 300 MW based on new data reflecting an increased growth in demand, requiring an increase in both baseload generation and wind generation resources. The company has also added 200 MW of wind generation to the plan. The wind farm ownership details include an option-to-purchase agreement with Midwest Wind Energy (MWE) for development rights to the Cedar Ridge Wind Farm. Since 2004, MWE has been procuring necessary entitlements, permits, leases and other development rights to allow for the construction and operation of approximately 40 wind turbines. The company is actively pursuing additional wind purchase power agreements and ownership opportunities in Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota for WP&L customers. WP&L is an Alliant Energy Company.
