WASHINGTON, DC, In year-end contracts that are some of the largest wind energy deals in the United States, Bonneville Power Administration will double its purchase of wind power.

"BPA's latest commitment to purchase wind power helps ensure that we are diversifying our energy portfolio," says energy secretary Spencer Abraham. "Diversity is important for America's energy security."

In a 25-year deal, BPA will purchase 34 percent of the output from the Stateline Wind Project located on the border of Oregon and Washington. Ninety 90 megawatts will be delivered through PacifiCorp Power Marketing, a subsidiary of ScottishPower, beginning December 29.
