Orion Energy Group has declared part of the wind farm that will supply Duke Energy - about 54 wind turbines - commercial. An additional 33 turbines, some supplying Duke Energy and some supplying Vectren Energy Delivery, will be commercial soon.

In August 2006, Duke Energy finalized an agreement to purchase up to approximately 100 MW of electricity for 20 years from the wind farm. The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission approved the agreement later that year.

"Clean, carbon-free wind-generated energy is a good addition to our power sources," says Duke Energy Indiana President Jim Stanley. "The agreement was the first significant, long-term purchase of wind power in Indiana."
