RWE Signs PPAs with Microsoft for Texas Wind Power 


RWE has signed two 15-year PPAs with Microsoft, under which Microsoft will purchase electricity from two RWE onshore Texas wind farms. 

Combined, the company’s Peyton Creek II onshore wind farm and Lane City project have a capacity of 446 MW. 

“As RWE, we are excited to be working with Microsoft to provide the clean electricity they need to achieve their sustainability goals,” says Andrew Flanagan, CEO of RWE Clean Energy.

“Together, we’re united in our efforts to deliver a clean energy future. As a growing green business, we are committed to driving our renewable targets, supporting local communities to grow sustainably.”  

RWE is using Vestas, Wanzek Construction and RES to build the wind farms, including installing V163 4.5 MW turbines from Vestas North America. 

Construction of the 243 MW Peyton Creek Wind Complex, located near RWE’s Peyton Creek I wind farm in Bay City, Texas, is under way.

Construction of the 203 MW Lane City project is expected to start this summer.
