Southern Power, a US wholesale energy provider, has announced the acquisition of its tenth wind project – the 100MW Wildhorse Mountain Wind Facility, located in Pushmataha County, OK, USA.
Roaring Fork Wind, a co-development partnership between Renewable Energy Systems Americas (RES) and Vestas, developed the project. Once operational, all electric energy, capacity and other attributes generated by the facility will be sold under a 20-year power purchase agreement to Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (AECC). The project is expected to consist of 29 Vestas wind turbines. RES will provide the balance of plant construction of the facility, and Vestas will provide long-term maintenance of the turbines through a 20-year service agreement. Wildhorse Mountain is expected to achieve commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2019.
