Missouri will buy 150 MW of electricity from an Oklahoma wind farm that is scheduled to be in operation by June, 2012, reports The Oklahoman.
According to The Oklahoman, the Osage County Wind Energy Facility, owned and operated by Wind Capital Group, will be the first utility-scale wind farm in the state.
Oklahoma is home to 14 wind projects. The Osage County project will push the state past 2,000 MW of installed wind power next year.
“Osage County has a fantastic wind resource and is proof positive that all of Oklahoma has an ability to take advantage of Oklahoma’s wind resource,” said Kylah McNabb, wind development specialist for the Oklahoma Commerce Department.
“With over 350 megawatts in power purchase agreements and an aggressive twelve month build schedule, Wind Capital Group is taking another significant step toward being one of the leading wind developers in the United States,” says Wind Capital Group CEO Ciaran O’Brian.
