Wind Energy

We've only begun to tap the potential for wind power generation.

PPL Renewable Energy partnered with the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority and Turkey Hill Dairy to build a 3.2 MW wind energy project at the Frey Farm Landfill to provide electricity to the adjacent Turkey Hill Dairy in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

The project, completed in February 2011, includes two wind turbines that generate about 25 percent of Turkey Hill's electricity needs.  That's enough power to produce six million gallons of ice cream or power 700 homes each year.

In addition, PPL has made a 20-year commitment to buy the electricity generated at two wind farms in Pennsylvania and has agreed to buy half of the renewable energy credits produced by a new wind farm in West Virginia.  The three projects total 132 megawatts of renewable energy.

 
Frey Farm

PPL Renewable Energy and the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority developed a small-scale wind energy project at the Frey Farm Landfill to provide electricity to the adjacent Turkey Hill Dairy. The 3.2 MW project received a grant from the  Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection through the Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority, which was supported with stimulus funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Nedpower

PPL EnergyPlus will buy half of the renewable energy credits generated by the first phase of the 164-megawatt wind farm in Grant County, W.Wa., over the next several years. The purchase of renewable energy credits supports renewable energy by providing some financial certainty for project development.
