RWE is building its 200 MW Montgomery Ranch Wind Farm in Foard County, Texas, increasing the company’s installed wind capacity in the state to 4.3 GW, enough to power more than 1.2 million homes.
The project will have enough capacity to generate clean power for more than 60,000 homes once operational. The project is not only expected to create 300 jobs during construction but will also have 45 4.5 MW turbines from Vestas once completed by the end of 2024.
"Wind projects such as Montgomery Ranch contribute to a cleaner, stronger economy and help create a more resilient energy infrastructure in Texas," said Mark Noyes, CEO RWE Clean Energy, a subsidiary of RWE AG. "Last summer, ERCOT set 11 new demand records, and we are on track to meet, if not exceed, that record this summer, and with our planned build-out of renewable resources in Texas, we are contributing to a more diverse grid that is flexible and responsive to meet future energy demands in the state."
RWE Clean Energy’s development platform for renewable energy projects is more than 24 GW in the U.S., which is a key market in RWE's growth strategy, “Growing Green,” to expand its renewables business and achieve net zero by 2040.
