Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) has signed a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with enXco for 150 MW of wind energy from the company's Shiloh II project in Solano County, Calif. Shiloh II will deliver approximately 509 GWh of wind energy per year to PG&E's customers in northern and central California, the companies say.

"Wind energy is one of many renewable sources PG&E is seeking as we increase the amount of clean energy provided to our customers," says Fong Wan, vice president of energy procurement for PG&E. "Our 150 MW agreement with enXco is an important step towards PG&E exceeding 20-percent renewable electric power under contract or delivered by 2010."

Shiloh II, scheduled to begin delivering power in December 2008, will be developed, constructed and operated by enXco, an affiliate of EDF Energies Nouvelles.
