CMS Energy announced it has purchased a majority stake in Aviator Wind, a 525MW wind energy project in Texas that will support efforts by Facebook and McDonald's to achieve their clean energy goals.
The project will start operations by fall 2020 in Coke County, about 250 miles southwest of Dallas. Aviator Wind will be operated by CMS Enterprises, a subsidiary of CMS Energy that develops, owns and operates utility-scale renewable energy facilities, including wind and solar. CMS Energy purchased the project's majority stake from funds managed by Ares Management Corporation's Infrastructure and Power strategy, which constructed and managed the project. Kansai Electric Power is the project's other major partner.
