Texas Rio Grande Valley to get more wind turbine electricity
The owner of a $300 million South Texas wind farm has put in a turbine order with a Danish wind company to supply 212 megawatts of wind turbines for the project.The area gets a lot of wind, especially in the evenings. Texas leads the nation in wind power with 22,000 megawatts of power already in place, mostly in West Texas and the Panhandle.
Boston-based Longroad Energy made the order from Danish wind turbine maker Vestas for the 238-megawatt Rio Bravo wind farm in Starr County west of McAllen. The turbines will start to be delivered at the beginning of 2019.
