BluEarth Renewables has confirmed that trustees for Alberta's Prairie Rose School District have signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to acquire the output of the developer's 115 MW Bull Creek wind project, located in Provost and Wainwright, Alberta.

Marlo Raynolds, BluEarth's vice president of market development, says the PPA stems from a 2011 request for proposal put out from the Commodity Purchasing Consortium (CPC), an Alberta consortium comprising 40 school districts.

Formed in 2005, the CPC allows the school districts to pool their purchasing power to get the best gas and electric rates, notes Raynolds.
