Duke Energy Renewables, a commercial business unit of Duke Energy, announced that its 200MW Mesteño Windpower project in Starr County, Texas, USA began commercial operation. It is Duke Energy’s fourth wind generation facility in Starr County and its eleventh in Texas.
The project’s output will be sold into the ERCOT market and Duke Energy Renewables has entered into a long-term hedge agreement covering the majority of the expected wind energy production. Vestas supplied 56 3.6-MW turbines for the site and Amshore US Wind provided development support for the project, and Wanzek Construction is the contractor.
