Dominion and Shell WindEnergy have announced the completion of the NedPower Mount Storm wind energy project in which they each own a 50 percent interest. Sited along the high ridges of West Virginia, the project is now fully operational, generating up to 264 megawatts of electricity from a renewable energy source for the mid-Atlantic power grid.

NedPower Mount Storm, whose construction began in 2006, is located about 120 miles west of Washington, D.C. in Grant County, W.Va. 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.

Thomas F. Farrell II, Dominion's chairman, president and chief executive officer, said:

"Dominion has about 1,300 megawatts of renewable generation in operation, under construction or in development. Renewables, conservation and other forms of generation - including clean coal and emissions-free nuclear - can and must play increasingly important roles in providing for America's energy needs."

Marvin Odum, president of Shell Oil Company, said:

"The NedPower Mount Storm project provides emissions-free power from a non-depleting source into a market serving the populous mid-Atlantic region of the United States. The delivery of this project not only adds to the economic activity of West Virginia but also contributes to the diversity of energy supplies we need in order to meet the energy challenge facing the United States. With the completion of NedPower Mount Storm, Shell is involved in wind projects with an overall capacity of 1,100 megawatts."

Output from the wind farm will be sold into PJM Interconnection, a regional transmission operator and wholesale electricity market serving 51 million people in 13 states and the District of Columbia.
