In the past nine months, Clearway Energy Group has signed 1.4 GW of wind deals with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE).
SGRE is providing varying wind turbine types to both build new projects and repower existing ones in Oklahoma, Texas, Washington and West Virginia.
Last August, Clearway began operations as an independent enterprise formed from the completion of the sale of NRG Energy Inc.’s renewables platform and NRG’s controlling interest in NRG Yield Inc. to Global Infrastructure Partners.
This week, Clearway also announced the financial close of repowering both the Wildorado and Elbow Creek Wind Farms in Texas with SGRE, totaling 283 MW. Wildorado and Elbow Creek were both signed in September 2018.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Clearway on these projects, which are a testament to a solid collaboration between both companies in the last year,” says José Antonio Miranda, CEO of onshore Americas at SGRE. “The repowering of the Wildorado and Elbow Creek projects is a major step in an exciting relationship with Clearway and a demonstration of confidence in Siemens Gamesa.”
Additional projects being developed by Clearway Energy Group included in the turbine arrangements feature the previously sold Mesquite Star project, currently under construction in Texas, and the proposed Rattlesnake Flat project in Washington, along with projects yet to be announced.
