Apex ropes Texas offtake deal
Co-ops to buy 101.2MW of energy from 150MW Oklahoma wind farm
Apex Clean Energy has signed renewable energy purchase agreements with two not-for-profit Texas electricity cooperatives for two-thirds of the output from the 150MW Grant wind farm in Oklahoma.
East Texas Electric Cooperative and Northeast Texas Electric Cooperative have joined forces to bring 101.2MW of wind energy into the mix for their member-owned organizations.
“ETEC and NTEC are saving their customers money, while supporting important economic development in rural Oklahoma,” said Apex president Mark Goodwin.
“Grant Wind will create hundreds of construction jobs in Grant County, Oklahoma and generate millions in property taxes for the county and local school districts.”
Virginia-based Apex expects to bring the Grant wind farm online in 2015.
