Arkansas will receive the benefits of generation with no fuel costs, cost savings immediately and over the life of the project, the full value of the federal Production Tax Credits available to the project, and the economic development benefits of wind turbine components being manufactured in Arkansas’…The $4.5 billion Wind Catcher project includes acquisition of a 2,000-megawatt wind farm under construction in the Oklahoma Panhandle and construction of a 360-mile dedicated generation tie line to the Tulsa area…SWEPCO has predicted $4 billion savings to electric customers over 25 years and also said the economy in Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana would be helped by production of turbine parts…Little is known about the opponents…[but it is clear] they have money for media advertising…” click here for more
