Atlanta-based Georgia Power, a Southern Co. subsidiary, has entered into an agreement with EDP Renewables North America to purchase 250 MW of wind energy from projects in Oklahoma.

According to the utility, the output from EDP's Blue Canyon Phases II and VI wind farms will travel on the Southwest Power Pool via Entergy and be delivered to the Southern Co. system. Georgia Power says it will begin receiving electrons, as well as renewable energy certificates, from the projects in 2016.

"We are continuously evaluating energy options that provide the best overall economic value to our customers," says Paul Bowers, president and CEO of Georgia Power. "Adding wind energy to our generation mix underscores our commitment to a diverse portfolio that offers clean, safe, reliable, sustainable and low-cost electricity for years to come."
