TradeWind Energy Inc. says it will develop a 200-megawatt wind farm near Goodwell in Texas County while Apex Clean Energy Inc. is planning a 300-megawatt farm near Balko in Beaver County.

Both projects were announced Thursday.

The Oklahoman reports that both farms will produce electricity that will be sold to Tulsa-based Public Service Co. of Oklahoma. PSO is a subsidiary of American Electric Power Company Inc. and has about 530,000 customers in eastern and southwestern Oklahoma.
