Edison Mission Group (EMG), a subsidiary of Edison International, has dedicated its Taloga wind project in Putnam, Oklahoma, US.

The Taloga wind project, which began commercial operations in 2011, has the capacity to produce about 130MW of power.

Under a 20-year power purchase agreement, Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company is buying all of the electricity produced by the project.

The electricity generated by the project is enough to meet the needs of about 35,000 homes.

Oklahoma Gas & Electric Retail Energy vice president Jesse Langston said the Taloga facility now supplies 10% of the annual energy to the company’s customers.

"And we are excited about the expected savings Taloga Wind will bring to our customers over the contract period," Langston said.

Valued at about $250m, the 17,780-acre Taloga project is powered by 54 Mitsubishi turbines with a generating capacity of 2.4MW each.

Taloga’s interconnection to the grid delivers power into the Southwest Power Pool transmission system.
