Houston-based Horizon Wind Energy LLC, a subsidiary of EDP Renovaveis, hosted a ribbon-cutting celebration at the Lone Star Wind Farm in Texas. The Lone Star Wind Farm has an installed capacity of 400 MW of energy.

"We are proud to be doing business in the great state of Texas, the leading state for wind energy in the U.S.," says Antonio Martins da Costa, CEO of Horizon Wind Energy. "The Lone Star Wind Farm is important to the Horizon project portfolio, and we are grateful to those who made it possible, including J. Aron, our landowners and the supportive communities in Shackelford and Callahan counties."

The Lone Star Wind Farm has been in full operation since May. J. Aron, the commodities trading arm of Goldman Sachs, continues to purchase electricity from Phase II of the Lone Star Wind Farm. Direct Energy purchases 200 MW of energy produced by Phase I of the project.
