Wind Technology

The Winds of Change Bring Power

Wind power is sustainable and renewable energy and leaves a smaller impact on the environment than burning fossil fuels.

SWEPCO is adding 810 megawatts of wind energy with the new North Central Wind project.

Turning Wind into Energy

Wind turbines use blades to collect wind’s kinetic energy. The wind flows over the blades creating lift, causing them to turn a drive shaft that turns a generator to produce electricity.

An inverter converts the electricity into alternating current electricity, which can then be used in your home and passed directly to the electric grid. A second meter is installed to measure how much energy your equipment generates, which helps us determine if you made more energy than you used and to apply a credit to your bill as appropriate.

SWEPCO Wind Power Purchases

Our customers are served by 469 megawatts of wind power purchased from facilities in the Texas Panhandle, western Oklahoma and south-central Kansas.

The wind resources are interconnected to us through the transmission facilities of the Southwest Power Pool, the regional transmission organization that utilities across parts of 14 states.

We purchase the output of the projects through 20-year power purchase agreements.

The High Majestic Wind Farm began operations in 2009. The other projects began operations in 2012-2013.
