The new wind farm will be located in Starr County, Texas, and marks the companies fourth wind farm there. The project’s output will be sold into the ERCOT market and Duke Energy Renewables will enter into a long-term hedge agreement covering the majority of the expected wind energy production.

Construction has already begun and will be completed by the end of 2019. Once completed, Mesteño will contain turbines 590.5 feet tall – some of the tallest wind turbines in the United States. The tall tower turbines will harness stronger winds and increase wind energy production. Vestas supplied 56 3.6-MW tall tower turbines for the site.

“We’re pleased to expand our tall tower technology and V136-3.6 MW platform,” said Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in the United States and Canada. “The combination of taller towers and V136-3.6 MW technology is perfectly designed to extract the abundant resource at the site, and deliver low-cost, reliable energy to the community and customer.”

The 200-MW Mesteño wind facility will produce enough energy to power about 60,000 average homes.
