Power generated by the 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.

Marty Crotty, president of AES Wind Generation, said: “Armenia Mountain is our first wind project in PJM Interconnection, which we continue to see as an important market in our US strategy. We look forward to developing new projects in the region.”

This year AES Wind Generation’s global operating capacity increased by 166MW to 1,447MW, including Armenia Mountain and wind farms in China and France. In 2009, the company brought a total of 995MW of thermal and renewable projects on-line in Cameroon, Chile, China, France, Jordan, Northern Ireland and the US.
