TradeWind Energy Inc. has entered into 20-year power purchase agreements with the Grand River Dam Authority (GRDA) for two Oklahoma wind farms totaling 234 MW.

TradeWind is developing the 136 MW Mustang Run project in Osage County and the 98 MW Breckinridge project near Enid.

Dan Sullivan, the GRDA's CEO and director of investment, says the state-owned utility has a goal to have a well-balanced and diversified generation portfolio.

"The addition of these wind projects will help bring the diversity we need," he says. "The fuel options we will have in the future will continue to serve our customers well with reliability and affordability."

"Oklahoma has an outstanding natural resource in wind, but what sets it apart for development is the state's commitment to encouraging wind energy in a way that creates jobs and spurs investment in local communities," comments Sanjay Bhasin, TradeWind's senior vice president for business development.
