Wilmington, Del.-based Delmarva Power's proposed contracts to buy up to 170 MW of energy from soon-to-be-built, land-based wind projects in Maryland and Pennsylvania were approved by the Delaware Public Service Commission.

"With the approval of these land-based wind contracts - coupled with the recently-executed Bluewater Wind offshore contract - Delmarva Power has a solid plan to meet Delaware's goal for 20 percent of our customer's energy needs to be met with clean, renewable sources by 2019," says Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power region president.

The wind power contracts include the following highlights:

- a 25-year agreement to buy up to 200 MW from a wind farm located off Delaware's coast, which would be built by Bluewater Wind Delaware LLC by 2015,

- two, 20-year contracts with Annapolis, Md.-based Synergics Wind Energy for up to 100 MW of wind energy and renewable energy credits (RECs) from wind farms, which are slated for completion in 2009 and 2010 and that would be built on land in western Maryland, and

- a 15-year contract with Arlington, Va.-based energy supplier AES Corp. for up to 70 MW of wind energy and RECs. The wind farm, slated for completion in 2009, would be built on land in north central Pennsylvania.
