Persimmon Creek: Oklahoma Wind Farm
Persimmon Creek Wind Farm, a 200 MW facility in Oklahoma, is Scout Clean Energy’s first completed wind development. The construction of 73 GE 2.5-MW turbines was completed in under nine months, and the facility has been online since September 2018.
The development of the Persimmon Creek wind farm has had a positive impact on the region. The project has helped to create jobs and will continue to provide economic benefit to Dewey, Ellis and Woodward Counties throughout the life of the project.*
Persimmon is a unique project, as the three-year commitment to purchase RECs from the project was finalized before it reached commercial operation. The competitive REC pricing offered by 3Degrees exceeded Scout’s pro-forma REC income for the project, helping to smooth its financial close.
3Degrees’ Multiple Mix Product is Green-e Energy certified and meets the environmental and consumer protection standards set forth by the nonprofit Center for Resource Solutions. Learn more at: www.green-e.org.
