Washington Gas Energy Services (WGES) has announced that PECO, PPL, Penelec and MetEd customers now have the option to purchase WGES PA WindPower, wind energy solely produced in Pennsylvania.

Residential customers and businesses can switch to WGES as their electricity provider when they sign up for either 50% or 100% WGES PA WindPower. The power for WGES' wind product will initially come from the 37.8 MW Lookout Wind Farm, located in Somerset County.

As part of the product launch, WGES joins ChoosePAWind, a coalition of wind power developers, wind industry manufacturers, green electricity suppliers and environmental supporters.
