From Green Right Now reports
Dominion and BP Wind Energy North America Inc. say they are evaluating wind energy projects in southwestern Virginia. The potential wind facilities would be the first projects announced since Dominion and BP said in April 2008 that they had entered into an agreement to jointly own, operate and develop wind energy projects in Virginia.
These potential wind farms in Tazewell and Wise counties would be developed by Dominion’s Virginia electric utility subsidiary and BP Wind Energy North America Inc. Both projects would be subject to all applicable local, state and federal permits and approvals.
The exact size of each project and scope of economic benefits have not been determined.
