San Francisco-based Pacific Gas and Electric Co., a subsidiary of PG&E Corp., has signed a long-term agreement to purchase wind energy from the Arlington Wind Power Project LLC, a subsidiary of Horizon Wind Energy LLC. Horizon will deliver 240 GWh of renewable wind energy annually to PG&E's customers in northern and central California.

The Rattlesnake Road Wind Power Project in Gilliam County, Ore., is currently under construction and is expected to begin operation in the first quarter of 2009. With this agreement, PG&E now has more than 1,213 MW of renewable wind energy under contract or delivered.

"Clean wind power is an integral part of our diverse renewable energy portfolio, which includes hydroelectric, geothermal, solar, wave and biomass resources," says Fong Wan, vice president of energy procurement for PG&E.
