Apex schedules open houses in Piedmont and Okarche

Staff Reports

Apex Wind Energy is hosting two public information sessions to share facts about wind energy and the Kingfisher Wind farm project.

The first session will take place from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12 at Okarche High School.

The second session will take place from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 14 at the Piedmont First United Methodist Church. Both sessions are free and will follow a “come and go” format, where Apex representatives will present information about wind energy, as well as updates on the wind analysis, development, construction, and technology of the Kingfisher Wind project.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a presentation about several wind energy topics, explore information about the project, review maps, and ask any questions they may have.

Presentations will take about 20 minutes and will be offered approximately every 10 minutes, allowing participants to come and go at their convenience. Light refreshments will be served.

The Kingfisher Wind Project is being developed in the unincorporated area of Canadian and Kingfisher counties east of Okarche, west of Piedmont, and north of Highway 3.

It is planned to include approximately 120 turbines that will produce 300 Megawatts of clean electricity, enough to power 100,000 American homes.

For more information about the community information sessions, contact Apex Communications Director Dahvi Wilson at dahvi.wilson@apexwind.com or (434) 220-6351.
