Enel Green Power Kicks Off $250M Wind Project in Murray, Carter Counties
Enel Green Power North America Inc. has started construction of a %250 million wind power project in Murray and Carter counties.
The Origin Wind Power Project will have 150 megawatts of installed capacity and will be able to generate approximately 650 gigawatt-hours of electricity per year. The plant will eliminate an estimated 700,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from the air.
Owned by Origin Wind Energy LLC, a subsidiary of Enel Green Power North America, the wind farm is scheduled to enter service by the end of 2014.
Origin Wind Power will have the necessary elements to qualify for production tax credits, Enel Green Power said in a statement. The new project will join two other wind farms in Oklahoma, Chisholm View (235 megawatts) and Rocky Ridge (150 megawatts), operating in Oklahoma. Enel Green Power operates more than 1,265 megawatts of installed capacity in North America.
