PG&E Brings More Wind Power On Line.

Utilities Online reports that PG&E just keeps getting greener:

PG&E began receiving renewable power from the Buena Vista Energy LLC Wind Project located in the Altamont pass area of Contra Costa County. PG&E's second newly constructed renewable project to come on line under California's Renewable RPS Program, Buena Vista will provide over 38 MW of wind power to California's electricity customers.

The utility currently supplies more than 13% of its energy from renewable resources that qualify under California's RPS Program. In addition, more than 50% of the electricity that PG&E delivers to its customers comes from generating resources that emit no carbon dioxide. Since starting its RPS Program, PG&E has entered into contracts for more than 1,100 MW of renewable energy consisting of wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and hydro resources.
