Wind Project Coming To The Panhandle

KSCB News - May 17, 2011 8:10 am

A Tennessee company has been picked to
build what it’s touting as the first utility-scale wind farm in
Texas County in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
Signal Energy LLC President Ben Fischer says his Chattanooga,
Tenn.-based firm will work with wind turbine manufacturer DeWind
Co. on the project near Guymon. Signal Energy says the 370-megawatt
project will produce enough electricity to power more than 24,000
homes.
The company says it will start construction by the middle of
this year for the 80-megawatt first phase of the project. That
phase is slated to start commercial operation in the first quarter
of 2012.
Signal Energy spokeswoman Cortney Piper says neither company
involved wants do disclose the project’s price.
