GE Renewable Energy will provide more than 500 wind turbines for Oklahoma’s North Central Wind Energy Facilities Project. Being developed by Invenergy, a privately held global developer of sustainable energy projects, and American Electric Power (AEP), the project will produce 1485 MW of renewable energy using wind power.
The North Central Wind Energy Facilities project consists of three wind farms located in north central Oklahoma — the 999-MW Traverse Wind Energy Center, the 287-MW Maverick Wind Energy Center, and the 199-MW Sundance Wind Energy Center. Construction of the three installations, which will be owned and operated by AEP, is currently scheduled to be completed in early 2022.
“GE Renewable Energy is delighted to be a part of this exciting endeavor, which is the largest combined onshore wind project in GE’s history to date,” said Tim White, GE Renewable Energy’s CEO for Onshore Americas. “As the United States and the world have adopted increasing amounts of renewable energy, Invenergy and GE are helping to accelerate this change by being the partners of choice for utilities and other leading companies that want to be part of the ongoing and critical transition to affordable, more sustainable renewable energy.”
