According to LCE, the 253 MW facility will sell 90% of the power generated to Amazon under a long-term contract.
“Complementing LCE resources with subject matter experts is a key part of our growth plan, and E.ON was an obvious choice, given their extensive operating experience in Texas wind power,” said Declan Flanagan, CEO of LCE.
“As an owner, we understand the challenges these long-term projects face, and we want to bring our ‘Service with An Owner’s Eye’ philosophy to the Amazon Wind Farm Texas facility,” E.ON North American Chairman Patrick Woodson said. “Our partners choose E.ON Energy Services because they know we have the breadth of experience to deliver high-quality, safety-focused services to operate their assets, with a focus on the bottom line.”
The agreement with LCE is the latest in E.ON Energy Services’ portfolio. Last month, E.ON signed an agreement with Novatus Energy to manage four of its wind farms, totaling more than 700 MW across three different states.
E.ON is one of the world’s largest generators of renewable energy, having invested more than $12 billion globally in wind and solar projects over the last decade. E.ON manages, owns, and/or operates wind farms in seven states and in nearly every major ISO.
