OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A power supplier for 42 municipal electric systems across Oklahoma has signed a purchase agreement to buy about 150 MW of wind power from a wind farm in northern Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority announced the signing Monday with Apex Clean Energy unit Grant Plains Wind.

Grant Plains is a wind farm in Grant County in north-central Oklahoma that is expected to come online next year.

OMPA general manager David Osburn says the agreement gives it the opportunity to increase its wind power from 12 percent to 17 percent of its overall portfolio.

The company also provides power generated from hydro, landfill gas, natural gas and coal from plants in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas.
