Sholes Wind Project update from OPPD

The turbines, totaling 71 in all, will make up the Sholes Wind Energy Center. The facility will generate 160 MW of renewable electricity for OPPD customers beginning in 2019. OPPD has entered a 20-year partnership with NextEra Energy Resources, who will own and manage the site.

The facility allows OPPD to have nearly 40 percent of its electricity generation to come from renewable energy sources, surpassing the utility’s goal of 30 percent.
