Newton, Mass.-based wind power company UPC Wind has announced the approval of a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to supply Los Angeles with wind power from its Utah-based Milford Wind Corridor project.

Approved by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles City Council, the PPA was made with the Southern California Public Power Authority, acting on behalf of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) and the cities of Burbank and Pasadena.

As part of the agreement, the LADWP will receive 185 MW from Phase I of the Milford Wind Corridor with the cities of Burbank and Pasadena receiving 10 MW and 5 MW from the project, respectively. The LADWP's share represents enough power to meet 1.9% of the city's renewable energy goal of 20% by 2010.

"We applaud the city's commitment to wind energy, and we are pleased that the Milford Wind Corridor project will play a role in helping them to achieve some of their renewable energy goals," says Krista Kisch, vice president of business development for UPC Wind.
