began a leasing partnership with Kansas-based
in 2008 as part of the development of the Rocky Ridge Wind Project
located in Western Oklahoma's Washita and Kiowa Counties.
The leasing portion of this project
concluded in early 2010,
with over 80,000 acres leased.
Once leasing was complete,
Enel North America,
Inc. oversaw the
physical construction of the project, which went online in July 2012, with a total of 93
turbines providing nearly 150 megawatts of total power to the
in 2017 to work with Tradewind to development new wind projects
in Western and Northern Oklahoma.
Why Wind Energy?
While oil and natural gas will continue to be the
primary source of energy for our nation, it is also
important to develop additional supplies when possible.
Besides the abundance of this natural resource here
Oklahoma, wind energy also produces zero emissions, is
renewable, cost-effective, and wind turbines are able to
provide energy even during seasons of high usage. A wind
system can supply up to 20% of a utility company's
Wind projects contribute to the revitalization of rural
communities, as well as the preservation of farms,
ranches and prairies.
