Renewable-energy developer, owner and operator Scout Clean Energy LLC has completed a deal to sell its 199-megawatt Persimmon Creek Wind Farm in western Oklahoma to Evergy Inc. (NYSE: EVRG) for about $250 million.

Persimmon went online in 2018 with turbines across 17,000 acres in Dewey, Ellis and Woodward counties in Oklahoma, according to a Scout news release.

“The Persimmon Creek Wind Farm has been a reliable source of renewable energy over the last four years, making it a solid investment for Scout,” Scout chief executive Michael Rucker said in the release. “We are excited to execute the sale to Evergy as it seeks to deliver carbon-free wind energy directly to their customers.”

Evergy is a utility company with 1.6 million customers in Kansas and Missouri.
