Colbeck’s Corner Wind Farm Now Operating In Texas


E.ON’s 200 MW Colbeck’s Corner wind farm, located east of Amarillo, Texas, has been put into operation.

According to E.ON, the project’s 112 GE 1.79-100 turbines can generate enough energy to supply the equivalent of 64,000 households with power. Under a long-term contract, the wind farm is supplying Digital Realty, a global provider of data centers, with 400,000 MWh of power annually.

Named in honor of Doug Colbeck, an E.ON employee and wind farm developer who passed away from a serious illness, the project is the 20th wind farm E.ON has put into operation in the U.S. In addition, throughout North America, the company has built wind farms totaling 3 GW.
