The Plains and Eastern Clean Line is to be the largest wind energy project in the country and the first project of its kind in years. It will deliver around 4,000 megawatts of power generated by wind turbine farms in Oklahoma. The lines will run nearly 720 miles, ending in Memphis.

While there is no evident price tag for the project yet, construction plans are underway and actual construction could begin as early as the second quarter of next year.
