13 Aug 2021

Through its subsidiary EDP Renewables North America LLC, EDP Renewables has announced that its 180MW Wildcat Creek wind farm, located in Texas, has reached commercial operations and is producing energy.

In addition to Reloj del Sol wind farm in Zapata County, Wildcat Creek wind farm marks EDPR’s fifth operating wind farm in Texas and is its second project to recently come online in the state. These latest wind energy projects have pushed EDPR’s Texas portfolio to 1,089MW in operating renewable energy capacity.

EDPR's Texas projects provide enough energy each year to power the equivalent of 275,000 average Texas homes. In terms of employment, Wildcat Creek created approximately 250 full-time equivalent jobs during the construction period and will support 10-12 permanent careers during the project life cycle.

Wildcat Creek farm is located approximately 89km north of Dallas-Fort Worth and is expected to pay a total of US$38m to the local government during the project life cycle. The wind farm will also pay a total of approximately US$72m inland lease fees to local landowners, ensuring a stable source of income throughout the duration of the project.

EDPR is dedicated to expanding Texas' leadership in renewable energy and growing the already US$1.5bn it has invested in the state.
