Southern Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, and Apex Clean Energy (Apex) today announced Southern Power’s acquisition of the 147 MW Grant Plains Wind facility from Apex. This is the third facility that Southern Power has purchased from Apex, along with the nearby Grant Wind and Kay Wind.
Apex is managing construction of Grant Plains Wind and will perform asset management services for the facility on behalf of Southern Power upon commercial operation, which is expected in December of this year.
Mark Goodwin, president and COO of Apex, remarked, “Southern Power has been a strong partner for Apex, and we are pleased to be working on our third wind facility with them.”
Grant Plains Wind will consist of 64 Siemens turbines in Grant County, Oklahoma.
Apex Clean Energy builds, owns, and operates utility-scale wind and solar power facilities. Last year, Apex was the market leader in the United States, with 1,042 megawatts of new wind capacity installations, enough clean energy to supply the population of a city the size of Boston or San Francisco each year for the life of the facilities.
With a team of over 200 professionals and the nation’s largest wind energy project pipeline, Apex is a leader in the transition to a clean energy future.
