San Antonio-based CPS Energy, a municipally owned energy company that provides electric and natural gas service, will purchase 115.5 MW of electricity and associated renewable energy credits from Chicago-based E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) North America's new Papalote Creek wind farm, located in San Patricio County, Texas. Construction on Papalote Creek is under way, and the project is expected to come online by fall 2009.

The additional 115.5 MW from Papalote Creek will boost CPS Energy's total renewable energy capacity to 703.7 MW and will move the company closer to achieving its goal of generating capacity from renewable resources equivalent to 20% of customers' peak electric demand by 2020.
