Utility Evergy to buy 199MW Oklahoma wind farm

Power firm Evergy has agreed to buy the 199MW Persimmon wind farm in western Oklahoma from Scout Clean Energy and Elawan Energy for approximately $250 million.

Commissioned in 2018, the facility consists of 80 GE turbines located in Dewey, Ellis, and Woodward counties.

“Evergy continues to tap into the Midwest’s affordable, renewable energy resources to serve our customers. Expanding our portfolio of owned renewable generation positions us to ensure customers receive the long-term benefits of these assets,” said Evergy president and CEO David Campbell. 

Kansas City-based Evergy supplies power to around 1.6 million clients in Kansas and Missouri.

The deal is expected to close in early 2023.
