RES starts construction of Redbed Plains wind farm, Oklahoma

The Redbed Plains wind farm will have a capacity of 99.1 MW and consist of 48 Siemens Gamesa turbines. An interconnection agreement for the project has been finalized with American Electric Power (AEP).  Nearly 250 jobs will be created during the peak of construction. The wind farm’s completion will mark the development and/or construction, by RES, of more than 1,100 MW of wind energy in Oklahoma, which now ranks third in the US with more than 6,600 MW of wind power installed.

“Redbed Plains marks a significant milestone for RES, as it is our eighth wind project in Oklahoma” said Jason Zingerman, Senior VP Construction for RES.  “We look forward to continued work with landowners and major stakeholders to bring the economic benefits of renewable energy to the Sooner State.”

Phillip Westerby, Executive Vice President, Technical, of EDPR NA, added that the company will expand its footprint to more than 600 MW of operational wind projects in the state with the completion of the wind farm and that the company remains committed to providing clean, renewable energy throughout North America.

RES began construction in April 2017 with completion scheduled for fourth quarter 2017.
