June 21 — The Wind Catcher project involves SWEPCO’s purchase of an interest in a wind farm in Oklahoma and then construction of an extra high voltage power line to connect to AEP’s system (SWEPCO’s parent company). That comes with a big price tag — about $4.5 billion according to documents from the PUC. About $3.1 billion of that cost would be SWEPCO’s responsibility, with about $1.1 billion of that pegged for Texas costs.
