E.ON Climate & Renewables has officially opened the first two phases of its wind farm in Roscoe, Texas. The wind farm can now generate 335.5 MW of electricity. Once all four phases are completed in mid-2009, Roscoe will be the world's largest wind farm, with 627 wind turbines and a total capacity of 781.5 MW, according to the company.

"This growth - and the development of the Roscoe wind farm in particular - underscores our interest in long-term investments and high-quality renewable projects in the United States," says Frank Mastiaux, CEO of E.ON Climate & Renewables, which is based in Germany. "This project is an example of our strategic drive to move the renewables business from boutique to an industrial scale."

The Roscoe wind farm is one of six projects that E.ON Climate & Renewables operates in the U.S., five of which are in Texas.
