Traverse is the largest of three wind energy projects being developed by Invenergy as part of the 1,485 MW North Central Wind Energy Facilities. The other two projects -- the 287 MW Maverick Wind Energy Center in Major, Garfield and Kingfisher Counties and the 199 MW Sundance Wind Energy Center in Woods and Major Counties -- both achieved financial close in December 2020.
All three projects are currently under construction. American Electric Power (AEP) will assume ownership of the three wind farms upon the start of commercial operations to serve customers of subsidiaries Southwestern Electric Power Co. (SWEPCO) and Public Service Co. of Oklahoma (PSO). Sundance is expected to begin commercial operations this spring, Maverick later this year and Traverse in early 2022.
