Solar Grazing Opportunity In OklahomaNew
My name is Jesse Miller. I work in the power generation division of an Oklahoma based G&T called Western Farmers Electric Cooperative. WFEC has been in business for 78 years and has seven generating facilities with a total power capacity of almost 2,500 megawatts (MW), including hydropower allocation, accredited solar and wind, and other contract power purchases. WFEC also owns and maintains 3,776 miles of transmission line to more than 330 substations and switch stations across the service territory. In 2017 WFEC built 18 community solar farms that have a total capacity of 20.7 megawatts. WFEC is interested in finding a grazier in the Oklahoma area to help with vegetation management. Not all of these sites will be able to utilize sheep, our main goal is to start with five large tracker sites that are 20-30 acres of fenced-in property each. These facilities are spread out over most of Oklahoma, but the majority are condensed in the west/southwest portion of the state. There is currently no water at the sites, however, they do have well-maintained 6-foot chainlink fences with additional barb wire arms on top. Please contact me if interested.
