First Wind and Avista Corp. have announced the completion of the 150 MW Palouse Wind project, located in Whitman County, Wash.

Avista Corp. is buying the energy produced by the Palouse Wind project under a 30-year power purchase agreement and will take delivery of the power through a direct interconnect to the Avista 230 kV Benewah-to-Shawnee transmission line.

"It's good for our customers and communities to have Palouse Wind right in our backyard,” says Dennis Vermillion, president of Avista Utilities. “Palouse Wind will help us continue to provide our customers with renewable energy at some of the lowest prices in the country, while benefiting the local economy with jobs and tax revenues.”
