The Georgia Public Service Commission (Commission) took another step today to diversify Georgia’s energy portfolio. The Commission approved a proposed agreement that will add 250 megawatts of clean renewable wind energy to Georgia’s electric grid. Under terms of the agreement, Georgia Power will purchase the wind-generated electricity from EDP Renewables North America, LLC, for 20 years beginning January 1, 2016. EDP will operate two wind farms in Oklahoma, Blue Canyon II with 151 MW and Blue Canyon VI with 99 MW of electric generation. These contracts will provide energy at a cost below Georgia Power’s projected avoided costs.
