Tri Global Energy has announced the initial phase of 197.6MW of the Bearkat Wind Energy Project (Bearkat) has reached financial close and begun construction. Comprised of 30,000 leased acres of privately owned farm and ranch land in Glasscock County, Texas, Bearkat is owned by Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP).
Since founding the Bearkat community-sponsored wind energy project in September 2012, Tri Global Energy has been a manager, member and the exclusive project developer. In July 2016, CIP purchased Bearkat and another Tri Global Energy wind development, Blue Cloud Wind Energy. Since then, Tri Global Energy's project development team has worked closely with CIP to achieve financial closing and funding to start of construction.
