According to the Environmental Leader, the wind farm joins other operational projects, such as 199-megawatt Sundance Wind Energy Center and 287-megawatt Maverick Wind Energy Center. These three projects are all operated by Invenergy, and together they make up the North Central Energy Facilities. Their turbines have a capacity of 1,484 megawatts, which is the largest wind facility in the world.

“The North Central Energy Facilities represent a $2 billion capital investment in north central Oklahoma, directly investing in the local economy through new tax revenues and lease payments to participating landowners and will generate enough electricity to power 440,000 American homes.”

Invernergy Services will provide all maintenance and necessary operations under Invenergy Services. This company has a 10-year agreement for operating this wind farm. Their portfolio already has 13-gigawatt global sustainable energy worth of projects.
