    Evergy to buy 199-MW Oklahoma wind farm

    August 9, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      August 9 (Renewables Now) - US electric utility Evergy Inc (NYSE:EVRG) on Tuesday said it will buy a 199-MW wind farm in Oklahoma for about USD 250 million (EUR 245m) to expand its portfolio of owned renewable energy.

      Evergy will acquire the Persimmon Creek wind farm from Scout Clean Energy, which is a portfolio company of Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners, and Elawan Energy. The deal is seen to close by early 2023 subject to conditions, including regulatory approvals.

      Located in Dewey, Ellis and Woodward counties in western Oklahoma, the wind farm consists of 80 General Electric turbines that started commercial operation in 2018. Its generation will power customers in the Evergy Missouri West service area.

      “Evergy continues to tap into the Midwest’s affordable renewable energy resources to serve our customers,” said Evergy president and chief executive David Campbell. The company aims to add more than 3,500 MW of renewables and retire more than 1,900 MW of coal-based generation over the next 10 years.
