The California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has approved a new wind contract for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) that contributes to the statewide target of 20% renewables by 2010.

Through its power purchase agreement (PPA) with PPM Energy's Klondike III, PG&E will procure 38% of the wind facility's total capacity, approximately 85 MW, and PG&E will accept deliveries equal to approximately 265 GWh per year. The intermittent generation of this wind project will be firmed and shaped by PPM, which will deliver energy in 7x24 blocks to PG&E.

The project is from PG&E's 2006 renewables portfolio standard (RPS) solicitation, and represents the first out-of-state facility to achieve commercial operation and contribute to a California utility's renewable energy targets.
