According to Constellation Energy, the agreement covers approximately 99 MW, representing roughly half of the generating capacity produced by 120 turbines at Twin Groves I. The 18-year contract will run through 2025. Twin Groves I commenced operations in April 2007.

On July 25, the companies entered into a similar 18-year agreement for the entire 198 MW to be produced by 120 turbines at Twin Groves II.
