200-MW Goodwell Wind project due to produce test power around Sept. 1

The 200-MW project of Goodwell Wind Project LLC is currently due to produce initial test power around Sept. 1 of this year, said Goodwell Wind in a notice filed May 6 at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The notice is that the company has self-certified as an exempt wholesale generator. Its project is located in Texas County, Oklahoma, and Hansford County, Texas. It is located in the Oklahoma Gas and Electric balancing authority area and will sell all of its power at wholesale.

The project company is controlled by Enel Green Power North America.

The Public Service Co. of Oklahoma (PSO) subsidiary of American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) had announced in October 2013 that it had signed agreements for the long-term purchase of nearly 600 MW of wind energy from three facilities under development in northwestern Oklahoma and the Oklahoma panhandle, including this one.
