Constellation Energy Signs Agreement to Acquire Western Maryland Wind Project

Constellation Energy Signs Agreement to Acquire Western Maryland Wind Project

BALTIMORE- Constellation Energy (NYSE:CEG) today announced it has signed an agreement with Clipper Windpower, Inc. to acquire the Criterion wind project in Garrett County, Md. The $140 million, 70-megawatt wind energy project would be developed, constructed, owned and operated by Constellation Energy. This new renewable energy resource would provide enough sustainable electricity to meet the annual equivalent usage of an estimated 23,000 households. It is one of several clean energy initiatives Constellation Energy has recently completed or proposed across Maryland.


Under terms of the agreement, Constellation Energy will purchase from Clipper Windpower the Criterion project and 28 of Clipper’s 2.5-megawatt Liberty wind turbines. The Criterion project has received the necessary state approvals. Criterion’s 2008 state application was the first to win approval under a 2007 state law promoting wind development in Maryland.
“Constellation Energy remains committed to pursuing clean, green energy generation and conservation projects in Maryland,” said Mayo A. Shattuck III, chairman, president and chief executive officer, Constellation Energy. “These projects have the potential to produce high-paying construction jobs while increasing and diversifying energy supply in the state of Maryland. The Criterion project is an ideal example of the kind of innovative and sustainable energy project that can help Maryland meet its ambitious renewable energy objectives.”
The Constellation Energy-Clipper Windpower agreement, which is subject to certain terms and conditions, is expected to close in the first quarter of 2010. Commercial operation of the wind energy facility is anticipated in the fall of 2010.


The Criterion project has entered into a 20-year power purchase agreement with the Old Dominion Electric Cooperative for energy and renewable energy credits produced by the wind facility. Old Dominion is a not-for-profit wholesale power provider serving public electric cooperatives in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia.
The proposed Western Maryland wind project is one of several renewable energy initiatives Constellation Energy has developed or is pursuing on behalf of public and private sector customers in the state. Within the last year, Constellation Energy completed one of the largest photovoltaic systems in Maryland - a nearly 1-megawatt solar project for McCormick & Company - and constructed a 300-kilowatt solar system for the Maryland Environmental Service, the first of its kind for a Maryland state agency.
