Apex Wind Energy has completed the development and construction of the approximately 300 MW Canadian Hills Wind project, located near Oklahoma City.

According to the company, Canadian Hills represents the largest single-phase wind farm to be developed and constructed in Oklahoma. The wind farm, which increases the state's installed wind capacity by 13%, began operating on Dec. 22.

Prior to construction, Apex secured long-term power purchase agreements for 100% of the project’s capacity with three electric utilities in the region.

During construction, the project employed nearly 300 people, while up to 20 permanent jobs have been directly created to manage the project’s long-term operations, Apex notes.
