American National Wind Power (ANWP), a wholly owned subsidiary of National Wind Power, a United Kingdom Company, joined the development activity as owner and operator in mid 1999. GreenMountain.com purchased the energy from ANWP under a long-term power purchase agreement. The project, comprised of eight (8) Nordex 1.3 megawatt (1.3 MW) wind turbines, is deployed partially on reclaimed land, previously strip mined for coal. Each turbine has a sixty (60) meter tower, for a total height of approximately three hundred (300) feet. The project is interconnected through a substation owned by Somerset REC, to a 115 kV transmission line owned by General Public Utilities.
