268-MW Helena Wind Farm, which is located in Bee County, Texas, was commissioned in mid-2022 and provides low-cost electricity to the South ERCOT service territory, enough to power an estimated 90,000 homes. Google has signed a 150 MW power purchase agreement (PPA) with Ørsted to purchase renewable energy generated by the wind project. This marks the first agreement between Google and Ørsted in the US, and the second agreement globally.

“Building a 24/7 carbon free energy portfolio requires us to blend various resources to optimise for hourly production, and that’s exactly what this project helps us accomplish” says Sana Ouji, Energy Lead at Google. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with Ørsted and add this wind project to our existing solar portfolio in ERCOT as we serve customers out of our Dallas cloud region.” 

“As a trusted partner in providing clean energy solutions for our customers, we’re proud to support Google’s decarbonisation goals on both a regional and global scale,” says Monica Testa, Head of Origination at Ørsted Americas. “Google’s leadership in the investment of renewable energy and commitment to advancing 24/7 carbon-free energy by 2030 sets a strong example for companies across the globe and we look forward to helping them achieve that ambition.”
