Merrillville, Ind.-based Northern Indiana Public Service Co. (NIPSCO) recently announced plans to add wind generation to its power portfolio. The company says it will purchase 100 MW of wind power from Buffalo Ridge I LLC and Barton Windpower LLC, which are both subsidiaries of Iberdrola Renewables.

The power purchase agreement (PPA) with Buffalo Ridge is for wind generated in Brookings County, S.D. It will provide 50.4 MW for 15 years. Barton Windpower's PPA will supply NIPSCO with 50 MW of electricity generated from wind farms located in Worth County, Iowa, for a term of 20 years.

Electricity from the wind power will be delivered to the Midwest Independent System Operator's transmission grid, of which NIPSCO is a member. Purchases of wind energy are expected to commence in the first quarter of 2009.
