EDP Renewables, a global leader within the renewable energy sector and the world’s fourth-largest renewable energy producer, through its subsidiary EDP Renewables North America LLC, has started commercial operation of the 209 MW “Reloj del Sol” wind farm. The wind farm has begun producing power in Zapata County, Texas.

“Reloj del Sol” will help strengthen Texas’s grid and is estimated to supply approximately $36 million in direct payments to local governments and $100 million in payments to landowners throughout the life of the project. Moreover, the commissioning of this project supported 101 full-time equivalent jobs during construction and created 10 permanent jobs, dedicated to operating and maintaining the wind park. Reloj del Sol also will save quite 372 million gallons of water annually that might otherwise be used for cooling traditional power plants.

This project is the latest successful project in EDPR’s growing energy portfolio in Texas, joining the company’s four operating wind farms in the state. Collectively, EDPR’s Texas portfolio now totals 909 MW in operating renewable energy capacity – producing enough energy to power the equivalent of approximately 236,000 average Texas homes annually.

EDPR NA is committed to continuing to grow Texas’s leadership in renewable energy and increasing the already $1.5 billion it has invested in the state. it is also currently constructing the 200-MW Wildcat Creek wind farm, which is located in Cooke County, approximately 50 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth.
