EDP Renewables North America LLC (EDPR NA) said on Thursday that its 209-MW Reloj del Sol wind farm in Texas has reached commercial operation.
The wind park, located in Zapata county, consists of 63 turbines of the AW132 3.4 MW model by German supplier Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1), according to the company's website.
The US-based subsidiary of renewable energy giant EDP Renovaveis SA (ELI:EDPR) calculates that the wind farm will produce enough energy to power 45,000 local homes per year.
With the start-up, Reloj de Sol now joins EDPR's four other operating wind farms in the state. Together, these assets represent a total capacity of 909 MW and are capable of producing enough energy to meet the annual demand of around 236,000 local homes.
At present, EDPR NA is working on the construction of another Texan wind plant, the 200-MW Wildcat Creek facility in Cooke county.
