* First Dominion wind facility in growing renewable portfolio

* Generating wind energy for customers in mid-Atlantic

* Largest wind operation in Shell’s wind portfolio

MT. STORM, W.Va. – Dominion (NYSE: D) and Shell WindEnergy Inc.

(Shell) (NYSE: RDS-A, RDS-B) announced today the completion of the

NedPower Mount Storm LLC wind energy project in which they each own a

50 percent interest. Sited along the high ridges of West Virginia, the

project is now fully operational, generating up to 264 megawatts of

electricity from a renewable energy source for the mid-Atlantic power


NedPower Mount Storm, whose construction began in 2006, is located

about 120 miles west of Washington, D.C. in Grant County, W.Va.

The project consists of 132 wind turbines along 12 miles of the

Allegheny Front, and can generate enough electricity to serve about

66,000 homes and businesses.

Thomas F. Farrell II, Dominion’s chairman, president and chief executive officer, said:

“Dominion has about 1,300 megawatts of renewable generation in

operation, under construction or in development. Renewables,

conservation and other forms of generation – including clean coal and

emissions-free nuclear – can and must play increasingly important roles

in providing for America’s energy needs.”

Marvin Odum, president of Shell Oil Company, said:

“The NedPower Mount Storm project provides emissions-free power from

a non-depleting source into a market serving the populous mid-Atlantic

region of the United States. The delivery of this project not only adds

to the economic activity of West Virginia but also contributes to the

diversity of energy supplies we need in order to meet the energy

challenge facing the United States. With the completion of NedPower

Mount Storm, Shell is involved in wind projects with an overall

capacity of 1,100 megawatts.”

Output from the wind farm will be sold into PJM Interconnection, a

regional transmission operator and wholesale electricity market serving

51 million people in 13 states and the District of Columbia.
