A new wind farm in Oklahoma, owned by Southwestern Electric Power Company and sister utility, Public Service Company of Oklahoma, recently began to generate renewable electricity to SWEPCO customers in Arkansas. Two more additional wind facilities under construction will also go on-line in the near future. Peter Main, spokesperson for SWEPCO, details the North Central Energy Facilities project, in light of SWEPCO's clean energy goals.

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.
