OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Construction has begun on a $250 million wind farm in southern Oklahoma.

Enel Green Power North America says its Origin wind farm will have a total capacity of 150 megawatts once it's completed in Murray and Carter counties.

The Oklahoman reports that the Origin wind farm will supply electricity to Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp. through a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Enel says the new wind farm is expected to be up and running by the end of 2014. The company has two other wind farms in Oklahoma: the 150-megawatt Rocky Ridge project near Hobart and the 235-megawatt Chisholm View project new Enid.
