The first US wind project, Forest Creek started generating power in 2006. Its 54 Siemens Mark II 2.3 megawatt wind turbines rise 400 feet above the hills of West Texas and have a combined capacity of 124.2 MW. Under ideal conditions, this wind farm can power 37,000 homes, preventing 220,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year. Sited along ridgelines in West Texas, Forest Creek shares the landscape with familiar staples of the Texan economy: sheep, cattle and oil wells.
When choosing our wind farm sites we rely on both our in-house expertise and independent environmental experts. We believe that a clear strategy and understanding of market trends and market specific factors, such as the local community and politics, is key to our success in development.
