The Projects consist of eighteen towers utilizing General Electric's 2 MW class onshore wind turbine platform. Commercial operation was achieved in December of 2016 for South Fork Wind and in June of 2018 for Kimball Wind. Together, the Projects produce enough electricity to power approximately 16,000 US households and have 20-year offtake agreements with Iowa-based Muscatine Power & Water and the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska, respectively.
ITOCHU has an ownership interest in 15 power generation projects in the United States through its wholly owned subsidiary, Tyr Energy Inc. and offers O&M services through its wholly owned subsidiary, NAES Corporation.

The scorecard notes that, as a group, the utilities boosted their annual energy savings by 20 pct since 2015, saving almost 20 TWh of electricity in 2018 from programs administered that year -- enough to power 1.8 million homes.
The report highlights the ways in which the utility landscape has transformed since 2015, the baseline for the 2017 scorecard. New technologies are emerging -- states, utilities, and other stakeholders are increasingly focused on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the important role of energy efficiency with more than 900 different efficiency programs in 2018, about 300 more than in 2015. Additionally, 32 utilities piloted new programs that involve smart thermostats, online marketplaces for energy-saving products, commercial energy efficiency financing, and integration of efficiency with other DERs such as demand response and storage.
While overall energy savings increased, this upward trend was not universal, and seven utilities saw their energy savings decrease by more than 20 pct since 2015.
The scorecard also found that, while there is increased focus on changing utility business models nationally, utilities are generally slow to change these models and are often reluctant to give customers access to energy usage data.
The scorecard, which received no utility funding, increases the availability of utility-sector energy efficiency data to enable benchmarking and help utilities strengthen their programs. ACEEE focuses on the 52 largest electric utilities by retail sales volume, including all 51 utilities from its 2017 Scorecard, plus Tampa Electric.

As part of the test pilot, residential customers will be given incentives for using smart-home technologies as well as rebates for shifting their energy use during off-peak times. Commercial customers, meanwhile, will have the option of enrolling in PGE's Energy Partner Smart Thermostat program, which offers free thermostats and installation to qualifying businesses. The program will also give payments for businesses participating in load-control events. Other potential energy-saving opportunities include incentives for customers using rooftop solar or smart devices such as thermostats, water heaters and electric vehicle chargers and batteries.
PGE worked the Rocky Mountain Institute and an advisory panel to develop the program. PGE will also utilize the advanced communications capabilities and distribution system upgrades in three Oregon cities: Hillsboro, Portland and Milwaukie which have remote controls and other smart grid technologies installed to increase system reliability.
The launch of the test pilot comes as PGE submitted a new integrated resource plan to the Oregon PUC for approval to add more renewable power, increase energy efficiency and partner with customers to balance energy consumption during peak demand periods.

"Those two new projects will also propel GE Renewable Energy to break a record of its own: The business unit's onshore wind capacity in North America now exceeds 40 gigawatts. Its 25,000-plus turbines now have the capacity to power the equivalent of 11 million U.S. homes.
"Worldwide, the stats are even more impressive. GE Renewable Energy has more than 60,000 MW of onshore wind turbines installed across the globe -- enough to theoretically supply all of Indonesia.
"Since entering wind energy 15 years ago, GE Renewable Energy has provided turbines for some of the largest sites in the U.S, including the 845 MW Shepherds Flat Wind Farm in Oregon and the Horse Hollow Wind Energy Center and Capricorn Ridge Wind Farm in Texas. The company also supplied five 6 MW turbines for America's first offshore wind farm near Block Island, Rhode Island.
"GE's own contributions speak to a larger truth: Wind is blowing up. In the last decade, U.S. wind capacity has tripled to 54,000 wind turbines with a combined capacity of nearly 90,000 MW housed in 41 states, as well as Guam and Puerto Rico.
