E.ON announced today its largest single-phase project to date, the 440 megawatt (MW) onshore wind farm, Big Raymond. The development is located in Willacy, Cameron and Hidalgo counties. The project benefits from a 12-year power purchase agreement with Austin Energy for 200 MW.
Big Raymond Windfarm represents an investment of more than $500 million in the South Texas region.
E.ON recently announced two other South Texas onshore wind farms, Peyton Creek and Cranell, are under construction with a combined total of more than 370 MW and both of which are expected to come online by the end of 2019.
In 2017, E.ON, Germany’s largest utility, and Google announced they would partner in the solar market. With the partnership, E.ON uses Google’s solar platform, Sunroof, which uses Google Earth imagery to analyze a buyer’s roof shape and local weather patterns to create a personalized solar plan.
