Oklahoma Energy Project To Be Largest Of Its Kind In U.S.

Western Farmers Electric Cooperative has entered into an agreement with NextEra Energy Resources to build the largest combined wind, solar and energy storage project in the country. Journal Record editor Russell Ray discusses how this project could impact Oklahoma and potential challenges these companies could face. Katelyn Howard: You’re listening to the Business Intelligence Report, a weekly conversation about business news in Oklahoma. I’m Katelyn Howard, and joining me is Russell Ray, editor of The Journal Record. Now today I want to revisit a topic we discussed earlier this year which is renewable energy. In March, a national nonprofit trade association released a market report that ranked Oklahoma in the top 10 for solar energy potential, but near the bottom for utilizing that potential in 2018. But now that seems to be changing. Your reporter Daisy Creager writes that Western Farmers Electric Cooperative recently announced that it entered into an agreement with NextEra Energy to build the largest combined wind, solar and energy storage project in the country. Can you start by telling us where these projects will take place and when they are expected to be up and running?
