SWEPCO Close to Adding Three New Oklahoma Wind Farms to Energy Mix


In mid-March, SWEPCO, Southwestern Electric Power Company, announced reaching a settlement agreement to purchase several new wind generation and transmission facilities in north central Oklahoma. Spokesperson Peter Main says, pending final public service approval, the wind farms, which will go online late 2021, will add 810 megawatts of renewable energy to the utility's resource mix.
