Renewable energy giant E.ON said Thursday its largest, single-phase project, the $500 million, 440-megawatt onshore wind farm, Big Raymond, will be built in Texas’ Willacy, Cameron and Hidalgo counties, Kallanish Energy reports.
The project benefits from a 12-year power purchase agreement with Austin Energy for 200 MW of power.
“We’re thrilled to partner with another renewable energy leader in Texas in Austin Energy, especially with one of our main U.S. offices based in the city,” said Silvis Ortin, chief operating officer North America for Germany-based E.ON.
“We’re excited our largest windfarm in South Texas will move forward this year,” said Paul Bowman, executive vice president of Development North America Onshore.
