Southern Power announced an agreement to acquire the company's second wind project the 151-megawatt (MW) Grant Wind facility in Oklahoma from Apex Clean Energy.

With the addition of the Grant Wind facility, Southern Power's renewable ownership is expected to reach more than 1,600 MW, with 21 solar, wind and biomass facilities either announced, acquired or under construction. Across its system, Southern Company has added or announced more than 3,400 MW of renewable generation since 2012. Located in Grant County, Oklahoma, the project is expected to utilize 66 wind turbines manufactured by Siemens and will be capable of generating enough electricity to help meet the energy needs of approximately 50,000 average U.S. homes. The electricity and associated renewable energy credits (RECs) generated by the facility will be sold under 20-year power purchase agreements with Western Farmers Electric Cooperative, East Texas Electric Cooperative and Northeast Texas Electric Cooperative. The companies have each contracted for approximately 50 MW and will have the option to either keep or sell the RECs. The Grant Wind project fits Southern Power's business strategy of growing its wholesale business through the acquisition and construction of generating assets substantially covered by long-term contracts.
