Southern Power – Part of Southern Company – Strikes Key Acquisition Deal

Energy – the most important commodity of our time, nothing runs with out it, but I’ll quit stating the obvious. 

Recently, a huge energy deal was struck between Southern Power and a Wake Wind Energy Center in Texas; Invenergy Wind LLC.  

Acquiring interest in the 257-megawatt, 150-turbine Wake Wind Energy Center is huge for Southern Power and Alabama as a whole. As reusable energy continues to be explored, wind power is one of the key components to energy creation. 

The deal is a key add for Southern Power, a company already in control of more than 870 megawatts of wind generating capacity across Oklahoma, Texas and Maine. The facility is now Southern Power’s second largest wind generating station.

Southern Power is in the business of wholesale energy. This deal is an exciting step for the company, not only research wise, but in the impact it will have for our state. 

The continuous efforts from Birmingham businesses to shine a light on our city are unmatched; this being a great example of such priorities. 

CFO and Operating Business Group President of Invenergy, Jim Murphy says to the BBJ, they will continue to look for more opportunities to partner with the Pelham based energy company.
