'American Wind Week' Launches to Teach America About the Power of Wind

'American Wind Week' Launches to Teach America About the Power of Wind

Once operational in 2020, the Wind Catcher facility is a 2,000-MW (2 GW) wind farm that will be the largest in the U.S. and second-largest in the world. The wind facility is part of the $4.5 billion Wind Catcher Energy Connection that also includes an approximately 350-mile dedicated, extra-high voltage power line. American Electric Power (AEP) utility subsidiaries Public Service Co. of Oklahoma (PSO) and Southwestern Electric Power Co. (SWEPCO) are asking utility regulators in Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma to approve plans to purchase the wind farm from Invenergy upon completion of construction and to build the power line to serve PSO and SWEPCO's more than 1.1 million customers.
