Invenergy Wind LLC has commenced full commercial operation of its 148.6 MW Goldthwaite Wind Energy Center in Mills County, Texas.

Located southeast of the town of Goldthwaite and approximately 100 miles north of Austin, the facility utilizes 83 GE 1.7 MW wind turbines, which began operating in December. In addition, three GE 2.5 MW brilliant wind turbines at Goldthwaite are now operational. Invenergy says this marks the first U.S. installation of the GE 2.5 MW brilliant turbines, which feature short-term battery storage.

“We’re proud to begin operation at Goldthwaite and utilize the latest in wind turbine technology,” says Jim Shield, chief development officer at Invenergy. “We’re also pleased to invest in the economic future of Mills County and look forward to a long-term, successful relationship with our host community in the years to come.”
