Edison Mission Group (EMG), a subsidiary of Edison International, says it has officially dedicated its Taloga wind project in Putnam, Okla., located approximately 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City in Dewey County.
According to EMG, the Taloga project can generate up to 130 MW of power. The project is powered by 54 2.4 MW Mitsubishi wind turbines, and is located on a site that spans approximately 17,780 acres.
All of the electricity produced by the project is being provided to Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. under a 20-year power purchase agreement. Taloga's interconnection to the grid delivers power into the Southwest Power Pool transmission system.
The Taloga wind project is EMG's third wind energy project in Oklahoma, joining the 19 MW Buffalo Bear wind project and the 95 MW Sleeping Bear wind project, both located in nearby Harper County. EMG plans to develop future wind projects in Oklahoma and is working to identify potential sites, including a potential expansion of the Taloga project or the addition of adjacent projects.
