NRG Energy began construction on the Elbow Creek Wind Project, a 122 MW wind farm near Big Spring, Texas.
Construction is expected to take nine months with commercial operation achieved by year end. The project will use 53 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbine generators and will be built on approximately 6,700 acres of land.
This project, led by Padoma Wind Power, a unit of NRG Energy, comes on the heels of the announcement of a partnership between NRG and BP Alternative Energy North America Inc. to build the first phase of the Sherbino Wind Farm, a 150 MW wind project in Texas.
