Duke Energy Renewables will develop a 200-megawatt wind power project in Oklahoma, the company’s first renewables project in the state.
The company will build, own and operate the Frontier Windpower Project, sited in Kay County. When completed, it will increase Duke Energy Renewables’ US wind capacity to more than 2,000MW.
The power will be sold to City Utilities of Springfield, Monatano, under a 22-year agreement.
Construction is scheduled to start in the first quarter of next year, and the project is expected to be operational by the end of 2016. Vestas will supply 61 sets of 3.3-MW wind turbines. Duke Energy Renewables has successfully partnered with Vestas on many of its Texas wind projects.
Wanzek Construction will construct the plant.
