Wind Capital Group to sell 150 MW from Oklahoma wind project

St. Louis, July 21, 2011 — Wind energy developer Wind Capital Group announced today the signing of a power purchase agreement to provide 150 MW of electricity from its Osage County Wind Energy Facility in Oklahoma to Springfield, Missouri-based Associated Electric Cooperative Inc.

The Osage County Wind Energy Facility is located west of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, and has a non-contiguous footprint of less than 120 acres. Wind Capital Group will own and operate Osage County Wind.

Over the life of the project, Osage County Wind is expected to provide over $30 million in property tax revenues to Osage County, long-term lease payments to local landowners, and $1.5 million in regional business activity during construction. Additionally, the project will create 250 critical on-site construction jobs and 12-15 permanent positions during operation.

Construction is projected to begin early this fall and the project is expected to come online in June 2012.
