Altria Group, Inc. announced it has signed a virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) for energy produced by a new wind farm project, the Inertia Wind Energy Center, in Haskell and Throckmorton Counties, Texas.
The Inertia Wind Energy Center will be developed, owned and operated by a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC and is expected to be operational by the end of 2022 with a total generation capacity of 301 megawatts.
Altria’s contracted portion of the Inertia Wind Energy Center is intended to address the emissions from 100 percent of Altria’s annual purchased electricity demand across all U.S. facilities.
Altria’s agreement equates to around 400,000 MWh of renewable electricity per year
