Wind Tex Energy, a Dallas-based privately held developer founded by Steven K. DeWolf in 2002, has developed five Texas projects which comprise more than 6% of the total current Texas wind energy output.

Starwood Energy manages total equity commitments of approximately $1.3 billion. To date, Starwood Energy and its affiliates have committed to energy infrastructure transactions totaling approximately $3.2 billion in enterprise value.
