Edison Mission Group (EMG), a subsidiary of Edison International, officially dedicated its Taloga wind project in Putnam, Okla., approximately 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City in Dewey County. The site began commercial operations last year. Taloga Wind can generate up to 130 megawatts (MW) of power, which is enough to meet the needs of about 35,000 homes. All of the electricity produced by the project is being provided to Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company under a 20-year power purchase agreement.

"Oklahoma is a vital state for our wind energy portfolio with excellent wind resources and an economic climate that has attracted capital investment and job creation," said Pedro Pizarro, president of EMG, the sixth largest operator of wind energy projects in the U.S. "We look forward to many years of providing wind power to the customers of Oklahoma Gas & Electric, a company that is respected for its commitment to expanding the generation of renewable energy in the state."

"The Taloga facility is a great addition to our wind energy generation portfolio, which now supplies 10 percent of the annual energy to our customers," said Jesse Langston, Vice President of Retail Energy of Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E). "And we are excited about the expected savings Taloga Wind will bring to our customers over the contract period."

Taloga Wind is EMG's third wind energy project in Oklahoma, joining the 19-MW Buffalo Bear wind project and the 95-MW Sleeping Bear wind project, both located in nearby Harper County. EMG plans to develop future wind projects in Oklahoma and is working to identify potential sites, including potential expansion of the Taloga project or the addition of adjacent projects. The Taloga project is powered by 54 Mitsubishi turbines with a generating capacity of 2.4 MW each. The facility site spans approximately 17,780 acres. Taloga’s interconnection to the grid delivers power into the Southwest Power Pool transmission system. Taloga represents a total investment of $250 million in Dewey County. It is supporting the local economy with more than $50 million in property taxes and lease payments to local landowners over the next 20 years.
