San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has signed two power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Naturener, a wholly owned subsidiary of Madrid, Spain-based Grupo Naturener S.A., for the output from Naturener's soon-to-be constructed Glacier Wind Energy facilities in Montana.

Under a long-term renewable energy agreement, the wind farms will add 210 MW or 635,000 MWh annually, to SDG&E's total renewable energy portfolio.

"The Naturener Glacier Wind Energy agreements bring us closer to our goal of acquiring 20 percent of our energy portfolio from clean, green sources of energy," says Debra L. Reed, president and CEO of SDG&E. "Adding renewable energy is a critical part of our long-term energy plan for the region and for our customers."
