El Campo Wind Farm To Generate Energy for Meta


Recommended Posts

New wind farm going up in Wharton County, off 59 along FM 1162. Just east of El Campo. Meta has agreed to purchase 100% of the energy generated by it.

From January.


"Fengate Asset Management is moving forward on a new wind energy project west of Houston.

The alternative investment management group, which has offices in Houston and Ontario, said Jan. 19 it closed on construction and term financing with Japanese bank MUFG to fund the construction and operation of the 160-megawatt Prairie Switch Wind project. Fengate also closed on tax equity financing with GE Energy Financial Services and Tyr Energy to monetize the production tax credits for the wind farm.

Also on Jan. 19, Fengate announced notice to proceed with construction on the project."


Last I checked Wharton County was southwest, not west... but whatever.


From July


"County residents living on FM 1162 east of El Campo will see wind turbines moving in likely before the end of the year that will be powering social media “likes” as opposed to county homes.

With turbine shafts already going up, the 48-turbine Prairie Switch Wind Farm project developed by Triple Oak Power out of Portland Ore. is slated to generate 155 megawatt, enough to power 50,000 homes as reported by their project website."
