Spokane, Wash.-based Avista has acquired the rights to develop a 50 MW wind farm near Reardan, Wash., taking a step in implementing the company's 2007 electric integrated resource plan. The plan identified the acquisition of 300 MW of wind by 2017.

"The energy generated from this project is an additional step toward meeting the company's renewable resource targets and will help Avista satisfy the renewable resource requirements under the Washington State Energy Independence Act," says Scott Morris, Avista chairman, president and CEO.

The Reardan site is within Avista's service territory and close to the company's transmission lines. Proximity to the company's transmission system makes the development more attractive than building outside the service area. The Reardan project's average generation is expected to be about 15 MW.
