HENNEPIN, Okla. (AP) - Officials have dedicated a new $250 million wind farm in south-central Oklahoma that is providing electricity to an Arkansas utility.

The 150-megawatt Origin wind farm was dedicated Wednesday during a ceremony with federal, state and tribal officials. The wind farm, owned by Enel Green Power North America Inc., began producing electricity in November.

The Oklahoman reports (https://bit.ly/1i0ZjUE ) Origin is Enel’s third wind project to start production since 2012. Its fourth, the 150-megawatt Osage Wind project, came online in July, and two more projects are in the works.

The Origin wind farm is providing electricity to Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. under a 20-year contract. The wind farm has 75 turbines at its 18,000-acre site in Carter, Garvin and Murray counties. At full output, the farm can power more than 55,000 homes.
