The turbines generate up to 264 megawatts of electricity from a renewable energy source for the mid-Atlantic power grid. The project consists of 132 wind turbines along 12 miles of the Allegheny Front, and can generate enough electricity to serve about 66,000 homes and businesses.Locations:North America-United States of America-West VirginiaDate:24 May, 2012Credit:© Greenpeace / Robert MeyersMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Clouds-Day-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Renewable energy-Shell (commercial business)-Summer-Wind energy-Wind farms-Wind turbinesShoot:Wind Energy in West VirginiaWest Virginia Wind Facility (NedPower Mount Storm)Dominion entered a joint venture agreement with Shell WindEnergy Inc. in December 2006 to develop the first phase of a wind facility near Dominion's Mt. Storm Power Station in Grant County, West Virginia, about 120 miles west of Washington, D.C. In July 2007, Dominion and Shell WindEnergy Inc. announced plans for the second phase of the project.NedPower Mount Storm is now fully operational, generating up to 264 megawatts of electricity from a renewable energy source for the mid-Atlantic power grid.The project consists of 132 wind turbines along 12 miles of the Allegheny Front, and can generate enough electricity to serve about 66,000 homes and businesses.The electricity generated by the wind turbines flows across power lines from the coal-fired Mount Storm Power Station. Some of the electricity will also flow over a new 500,000-volt transmission line that Dominion completed to increase the supply and reliability in Northern Virginia.
