OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Two companies have announced plans to build new wind farms in the Oklahoma Panhandle.

TradeWind Energy Incorporated says it will develop a 200-megawatt wind farm near Goodwell in Texas County while Apex Clean Energy is planning a 300-megawatt farm near Balko in Beaver County.

Both projects were announced Thursday.

KWGS News reports that both farms will produce electricity that will be sold to Tulsa-based Public Service Company of Oklahoma. PSO is a subsidiary of American Electric Power Company Incorporated and has about 530,000 customers in eastern and southwestern Oklahoma.
