The NedPower Mount Storm LLC wind energy project has been completed, according to Richmond, Va.-based Dominion and the Netherlands-based Shell WindEnergy Inc. Both companies own a 50% interest in the project. Sited along the high ridges of West Virginia, the project is now fully operational, generating up to 264 MW of electricity for the mid-Atlantic power grid.

NedPower Mount Storm, whose construction began in 2006, is located about 120 miles west of Washington, D.C. in Grant County, West Virginia. The project consists of 132 wind turbines along 12 miles of the Allegheny Front.

"The delivery of this project not only adds to the economic activity of West Virginia but also contributes to the diversity of energy supplies we need in order to meet the energy challenge facing the United States," says Marvin Odum, president of Shell Oil Co.

Output from the wind farm will be sold into PJM Interconnection, a regional transmission operator and wholesale electricity market serving 51 million people in 13 states and the District of Columbia.
