Arlington, Va.-based AES Wind Generation, a wholly owned subsidiary of The AES Corp., has announced the start of commercial operation for its 101 MW Armenia Mountain wind farm in Pennsylvania. Located in the north central region of Pennsylvania in Tioga and Bradford counties, the wind farm consists of 67 1.5 MW GE SLE wind turbines.

Power generated by the Armenia Mountain wind farm will be sold to Delmarva Power & Light and the Old Dominion Electric Cooperative. Each of the investment-grade off-takers has contracted to purchase 50% of the output under separate 15-year power purchase agreements.

AES Wind Generation developed, owns and operates the Armenia Mountain wind farm. RES Americas Construction served as the construction contractor.
