Apex Clean Energy has sold the remaining 100 MW of its 300 MW Balko Wind project, located in Beaver County, Okla.

Through its subsidiary Balko Wind LLC, Apex entered the 100 MW renewable energy purchase agreement with the Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC). In October, Public Service Co. of Oklahoma signed up for the project's other 200 MW. Apex expects the wind farm to come online in 2015.

“Wind is an important part of WFEC’s diverse mix of generation, and plays an integral part in our overall commitment to renewable energy, as well as enabling the ability to reduce fossil fuel emissions,” comments WFEC CEO Gary Roulet.
