Q: Where Does Power from Indiana Wind Farms Go? A: Only 26% Going to Indiana Utilities September 2, 2011

One of the best little tidbits of information from this year’sWIndiana 2011 Conference held this year at the Indiana Convention Center July 20-21 is a simple little fact sheet prepared by a staffer from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC).

Almost everyone I talk to is thrilled to see the wind turbines as they drive on I-65 from Indianapolis to Chicago. OK, my universe of everyone is mostly renewable energy and distributed generation advocates. But what many people fail to realize is that merely 26% or 4.86.4 MW of a total of 1,889 MW of that wind power is going to Indiana utilities. Yeah, that’s right just a tad more than one-fourth is going to Indiana ratepayers.

That’s not according to me but rather from George Stevens who is a Utility Analyst with the Electricity Division of the IURC. Lots of good stuff here. Thanks, George!

I’d like to understand this better. Is the power actually transmitted to these out of state energy companies, or is it used locally with the power merely sold on a renewable energy credit market?
