Sponsored by

E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) North America dedicated the Anacacho Wind Farm with an onsite ceremony.

The project, located in Kinney County, Texas, which is in the south central part of the state near the Mexican border, and consists of 55 Vestas 1.8 MW wind power turbines providing 100 MW of wind energy. Anacacho Wind Farm began commercial operation in December.


"We are honored to be a part of the local community and we look forward to providing economic support and renewable, homegrown energy for many years to come," said Steve Trenholm, CEO, EC&R North America, at the dedication ceremony. "Wind farms create jobs, and provide an economic shot in the arm to farmers, ranchers, and rural communities across America."

More than 200 people were hired during construction and the project will employ about 8 permanent positions on the wind farm in Kinney County.

EC&R has invested more than $5 billion dollars in the U.S. in the last five years, creating more than 5,000 construction jobs and another 200 permanent jobs to keep its wind farms up and running.

Locally, this project will contribute more than $17 million in local taxes, while paying $8 million in local salaries and more than $34 million to landowners.

When operational, this project will mark the 18th operational wind farm in North America for EC&R, giving the company more than 2,700 MW online.
