NJRCEV's Two Dot enters operation

NJR Clean Energy Ventures (NJRCEV) says it has completed its 9.7MW Two Dot wind farm in central Montana, with electricity flowing to utility NorthWestern Energy under a 25-year contract.

The facility, which consists of six General Electric 1.62MW turbines with 87-meter rotors, is the first wind project developed by NJRCEV.

NJRCEV, the unregulated clean energy subsidiary of New Jersey Resources, whose main business is natural gas distribution, will own and operate the $22m wind farm.

NJRCEV expects that Two Dot will qualify for the federal renewable electricity production tax credit (PTC).
