P&G In Talks To Run Plant On Wind Power

pglogo3-25-08.jpgProcter & Gamble has reached an agreement in principle to connect P&G’s paper products manufacturing plant in Mehoopany, Pennsylvania to a proposed BP wind power facility, The New Age Examiner reports.

Although an agreement has not been signed, P&G spokesman Alex Fried said, “We’re certainly excited about it.”

The plant currently gets half of it’s 100 megawatts of energy from an onsite gas turbine. BP’s proposed facility would cover the other half.

Last summer, BP erected at least five test towers about five miles from the P&G substation with an interest in possibly building a 30-90 wind turbine facility. BP has begun transporting equipment to the area.

One thought on “P&G In Talks To Run Plant On Wind Power

  1. Wind power seems to be far more acceptable in the US than in the UK. It’s about time electric suppliers really push the UK government to make it easier to build them, some of the UK wind plants have been in planning for 20 years.
