"Redbed Plains marks a significant milestone for RES, as it is our eighth wind project in Oklahoma," stated Jason Zingerman, Senior VP Construction for RES. "We look forward to continued work with landowners and major stakeholders to bring the economic benefits of renewable energy to the Sooner State."

"EDPR NA will expand its footprint to more than 600 MW of operational wind projects in Oklahoma with the completion of the Redbed Plains Wind Farm," said Phillip Westerby, Executive Vice President, Technical.
