The Mustang Run Wind Project is located approximately 13 miles west of Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The project sits entirely within Osage County.
Transmission lines running near the project are owned and operated by KAMO (AECI) and Public Service of Oklahoma (AEP). Both lines are rated at 138 kV and would serve load in northeast Oklahoma or be exported into Missouri and AECI’s network.
To be determined.
