ABOUT Diamond Spring WIND
Apex Clean Energy is exploring the feasibility of constructing Diamond Spring Wind, a 300 MW wind energy project in Murray, Johnston, and Pontotoc Counties. Diamond Spring Wind is located in southern Oklahoma, roughly 25 miles northeast from the city of Ardmore.
The Diamond Spring Project Area was selected by Apex Clean Energy after thorough examination of many candidate sites within Oklahoma for following reasons:
- Verified wind resource
- Existing high-voltage power lines (Interconnecting to the Johnston County substation)
- Avoids sensitive military and environmental areas
- Strong local landowner and community support
Apex is working to engage state and local stakeholders to ensure your questions are answered. This website includes information about wind energy, Diamond Spring Wind, and important upcoming events. Please use this site to send us feedback, ask questions, and stay up to date on project news and developments as the project moves forward.
AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR Murray, Johnston & Pontotoc Counties
Diamond Spring Wind will create jobs and generate an entirely new source of long-term revenue for local schools, government services, and property owners. The total direct financial impact to the region is likely to be in the millions of dollars over about 30 years, with additional indirect economic benefits greatly exceeding that number.
Revenue from this project would inject millions of dollars into Murray, Johnston & Pontotoc Counties economy to support local merchants, contractors, and equipment suppliers. The power from Diamond Spring Wind will be delivered into the Oklahoma electrical grid, helping to diversify Oklahoma's energy portfolio.
