It's a drop in the bucket, but a step in the right direction.
BP Plc [formerly British Petroleum] said on Friday it expects to begin construction of five wind power generation projects in the United States in 2007.
The projects, located in California, Colorado, North Dakota and Texas, are expected to deliver a combined generation capacity of some 550 megawatts, said BP unit, BP Alternative Energy North America Inc.
When completed, these projects will exceed the company's previously announced target to build 450 MW by end of 2008.
"Our 2007 build program surpasses our target and does so a year ahead of schedule," said Robert Lukefahr, president of BP Alternative Energy North America.
550 megawatts is enough to power 88,000 households.
