Project Profile

Armadillo Flats Wind Project

The Oklahoma wind industry continues to steadily grow each year, and remains a leader in North American renewable energy resources. Once a leader in United States’ oil production, Oklahoma now ranks second in the nation for total wind energy generation. Armadillo Flats is a 247.3 MW wind farm located an hour north of Oklahoma City. The wind project is operated by NextEra Energy, and involves agreements from 300 landowners to open up the area to renewable energy production.
