Woodward's Newest Wind Farm in Commercial Operation

 
via The Journal Record

Maryland-based CPV Renewable Energy Co. has completed construction and testing of its 152-megawatt Keenan II wind farm near Woodward. The wind farm is up and running, delivering renewable energy to thousands of Oklahoma Gas & Electric customers.

Keenan II sits on about 8,000 acres 12 miles southwest of Woodward. The project is the second phase of a large wind generation development that will ultimately have the potential to generate 350 megawatts.

“We are delighted to bring this wind farm project in on schedule and to be generating more clean energy for the people of Oklahoma,” said Sean Finnerty, head of CPV Renewable Energy Company, in a written statement. “Keenan II will provide energy and environmental benefits to people of this region for decades to come.”

The new wind farm consists of 66 Siemens 2.3-megawatt wind turbines. The turbines can produce enough electricity to power about 45,000 Oklahoma homes and eliminate 413,000 of greenhouse gas emissions each year, which is equivalent to taking about 72,000 cars off the road.
