COVINGTON, Okla. (AP) – The development of a new wind farm in Garfield County has been announced.

The Enid News & Eagle reported Wednesday that California-based Infinity Renewables is planning the project for the Covington area. Senior product manager Casey Willis says that the company began working on the project in early 2015.

Willis says that the project is estimated to generate $1.5 million annually in property tax revenues over the life of the project. He did not say how many people the wind farm project could employ or the number of turbines planned for construction.
