Vancouver, British Columbia-based Western Wind Energy Corp. has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with UniSource Energy Services, a subsidiary of Tucson, Ariz.-based UniSource Energy Corp. of Arizona, for a new, fully integrated combined wind and solar photovoltaic energy project.

The late-stage development project is located in Mohave County on fully zoned land owned by Western Wind. The agreement allows the site to deliver up to 11 MW, with at least 300 kW from PV solar. The rest would come from wind energy.

The project, when completed, will increase Western Wind's existing nameplate production capacity and late-stage development assets from both wind and solar generation to approximately 181 MW. The project is expected to complete by June 2010.
