KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) – An energy company official says a new wind farm in northwest Oklahoma will not meet its deadline to be completed by the end of the year.

Apex Clean Energy spokeswoman Dahvi Wilson said construction on the project in Canadian and Kingfisher counties is ongoing. She said in a written statement that the project has seen some "standard construction delays."

Wilson says officials anticipate that two-thirds of the project’s turbines will be operational at year-end.

Residents remain in a legal battle with Apex over the roughly 300-megawatt wind farm. Plaintiffs filed a motion in October to advance the case and seek a permanent injunction. The motion to advance the case was denied.

A federal judge has scheduled a trial to begin in April in Oklahoma City.
