Key Project Attributes:
- Osage Wind will revitalize Osage County, providing steady income through lease payments to landowners, payments to counties in the form of taxes, create local jobs and increase spending during construction and operation.
- The 150 MW Osage Wind Project produces enough power for approximately 45,000 Oklahoma homes.
- Wind energy is good for Oklahoma. Tradewind has generated more than $1.6 billion in direct investment in the state and the residents of Osage County will directly benefit from our two projects here.
- The Project will be consistent with the energy- producing history of the region, which has seen significant oil and gas development. Osage Wind will only use approximately 2% of the total surface area once construction and restoration is complete.
