Ørsted has completed the 367 MW Western Trail Wind Farm located in Wilbarger and Baylor counties, Texas – its largest onshore wind project to date that brings Ørsted’s total onshore capacity to over 2.8 GW of wind, solar, and battery storage in operation.

The project has secured long-term power purchase agreements with PepsiCo, Hormel Foods, and Nucor for the majority of the power generated from the project. Both PepsiCo and Hormel Foods will also purchase power from the Haystack Wind project in SPP, due online later this year.

“Western Trail Wind is a well-sited greenfield development project that will provide low-cost, reliable power to the Texas grid,” said Philip Moore, Senior Vice President of Ørsted Onshore. “I’m very proud of our team working on this project as we continue to scale the business and play a leading role in the U.S. energy transition.”

The project is situated on property owned by Stan Kroenke. Daniel Zyvoloski, Land Manager for Kroenke Ranches, says: “The Waggoner Ranch has a rich history for developing energy resources. We’re excited to partner with Ørsted on the Western Trail Wind Farm to make renewable energy a part of our ranching operation.”

Western Trail will provide long-term financial returns in the form of increased property tax to the counties and three independent school districts. 

Ørsted delivered Western Trail Wind working with long-standing relationships with leading tax equity providers, equipment suppliers, and construction companies. All were instrumental to the smooth completion of the project.
