Wind Energy

Alabama Power is a leading purchaser among Southeast utilities of energy from out-of-state wind farms. The company has agreements with Chisholm View Wind Project in Oklahoma and Buffalo Dunes Wind Project in Kansas for enough energy to power more than 100,000 homes. Under both 20-year contracts, Alabama Power has the flexibility to use generated wind energy to serve customers and retire the associated renewable energy credits (RECs) or sell the energy and RECs to others, either separately or bundled together.
