Mustang Run Wind Project Key Attributes:

— The Mustang Run Wind Project is located approximately 13 miles west of Pawhuska, Okla. The project sits entirely within Osage County.

— The 150 MW Mustang Run Wind Project would produce enough power for approximately 45,000 Oklahoma homes.

— The project will only take a small amount of acreage (1 to 2 percent) out of service, including land for roads, turbine foundations, and maintenance buildings.

— The project is one of the most energetic wind development sites in northeast Oklahoma.

— Once fully developed, the project will pay approximately $2 million a year in total annual landowner payments.

— The project will utilize significant local labor and materials for its construction and operations and will generate significant economic benefits to the local community.

— The project is expected to have no material effect on any threatened and endangered species of birds or animals based on third party studies commissioned by TradeWind Energy.

— The project will offset approximately 450,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, 1,500 tons of NOx per year, and 2,100 tons of SO2 per year
