Iberdola Renewables, a global leader in the field of wind power, declared a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the City of Bryan in Texas using the Bryan Texas Utilities (BTU).
The city would procure 30 MW of renewable energy for a period of 15 years from Iberdola’s Peñascal 2 Wind Project located in Sarita, Texas. According to the Vice President of Iberdola, Barrett Stambler, the company would be able to offer long term fixed price assurances for the renewables as there is no fluctuation for this fuel which comes from a system generating power devoid of water consumption and air emissions or discharges. He further stated that Iberdola was happy to add the City of Bryan to its extensive customer portfolio.
BTU’s General Manager, Dan Wilkerson, confirmed that they would use renewable energy, a cost-effective way to meet BTU system’s growth needs when compared to other expensive available alternatives. The Peñascal Wind project with its proven track record of diversification and advantageous location is the perfect choice for boosting BTU’s power supply. The project with a capacity of 202 MW was recruited to serve by February 2010 and would begin operating from the first of January, 2011.
