Alabama Set for Wind Energy from Oklahoma, Kansas

February 27, 2013

Alabama Power is now receiving energy from the Oklahoma-based Chisholm View Wind Project as part of a 2011 power purchase agreement. A similar agreement was approved in September, 2012, with the Buffalo Dunes Wind Project near Garden City, Kansas. By 2014, the two projects will produce up to 404 megawatts from wind which is enough to power the equivalent of 115,000 homes. See the Alabama Power press release.
