RES on beginning commercial operations at Maverick Creek wind farm
Today, global renewable energy company Renewable Energy Systems announced it began commercial operations at the 492MW Maverick Creek wind farm in Texas. Indeed, this facility is located in Concho County. Besides, it is the largest single project that RES developed and constructed in North America.
Moreover, the company initiated the construction of the wind farm in September 2019. Notably, it currently hosts 127 turbines. Besides, the project created 400 construction jobs during peak construction and 25 full-time jobs to operate the facility.
“Renewable Energy Systems has met the challenge to deliver clean energy in Texas head-on;” said Tim Jordan, the company’s construction senior vice president.
Reception and developers
Thus, “we are proud of working alongside Algonquin to make clean energy a reality in Texas. Furthermore, we are particularly grateful to our team that worked throughout the pandemic and engaged with the local community.”
In fact, Roaring Fork Wind originally developed the Maverick wind farm project. For instance, Roaring Fork Wind is a joint venture partnership between RES and Steelhead Americas; Vestas’ development arm in North America.
Finally, in August 2019, the company announced a joint agreement with Algonquin Power & Utilities Corporation to develop the project.
Surprisingly, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic didn’t significantly impact work, as the project came to operations on schedule.
