Southern Power announced it has acquired the 100-MW Wildhorse Mountain Wind Facility from Roaring Fork Wind, a partnership between Renewable Energy Systems Americas and Vestas.

The facility is under development in Pushmataha County, Oklahoma, and is expected to enter operations in the fourth quarter of 2019. RES will continue to provide construction duties with Vestas contributing 29 turbines.

Power generated will be sold to the Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation.

Wildhorse Mountain will be Southern’s fourth wind development in Oklahoma and tenth nationwide. Including Wildhorse, Southern’s wind fleet now consists of 1,600 MW.
