Enel begins construction on close to 300 MW of new U S wind projects

Enel, through its U.S, renewables company Enel Green Power North America, Inc., has started construction on two new wind farms in the U.S., totaling close to 300 MW of new renewable capacity.

These new wind facilities, together with the 450-MW High Lonesome wind project and the 497-MW Roadrunner solar project, both being built in Upton County, Texas, bring the company’s total renewable capacity under construction in the country to around 1,250 MW.

“Today’s announcement reinforces our commitment to continued growth throughout the country,” said Georgios Papadimitriou, Head of Enel Green Power North America. “These projects will enable us to further capitalize on the abundant wind resource in the central U.S. as we continue to expand our footprint in this region and increase the geographical diversification of our portfolio.”
