Apex Clean Energy has acquired the Novus IV wind energy project, located in Hansford County and Sherman County, Texas, from Guymon, Okla.-based Novus Windpower LLC.
Located in the north Texas Panhandle, the wind project has the potential to bring 360 MW of wind energy into the Southwest Power Pool market. The company notes that construction could begin as early as 2017.
“Novus IV is an excellent project in a strategic location,” said Mark Goodwin, president of Apex. “The Texas and Oklahoma Panhandle region has some of the best wind in the country, and we are pleased to be partnering with Novus Windpower to bring this project through construction and into operations.”
Apex Clean Energy builds, owns, and operates utility-scale wind and solar power facilities. Last year, Apex was the market leader in the U.S., with 1,042 MW of new wind capacity installations – enough clean energy to supply the population of a city the size of Boston or San Francisco each year for the life of the facilities.
