SILVER SPRING, Md., Oct. 23 (UPI) -- The Tennessee Valley Authority reached a 20-year purchase agreement with CPV Renewable Energy Co. for 200MW of energy from a North Dakota wind farm.

Sean Finnerty, a senior vice president at CPV, said its partnership with the TVA would advance the generation of electricity through wind power from its Ashley wind farm in North Dakota.

"CPV is committed to continuing to grow our portfolio of renewable energy projects and help America build a bridge to a sustainable energy future," he said.

CPV said it was in the process of obtaining permits to construct and operate the wind farm. The Ashley wind farm is scheduled to start producing power in 2012.

The Maryland-based solar and wind energy company said it has 5,000 MWs of wind power and photovoltaic projects across North America.
