E.ON Climate & Renewables (EC&R) has crossed the 1,000 MW threshold for owning and operating wind farms in the U.S.

"Despite these economic times, EC&R remains on schedule to deliver some of the industry's most efficient wind energy projects," says Declan Flanagan, CEO of EC&R North America. "Surpassing the 1,000 MW threshold is proof that EC&R has the expertise and financial strength to meet the nation's growing demand for renewable energy."

Recently, EC&R began construction on two new wind farms: Papalote Creek, located near Corpus Christi, Texas; and Stonycreek wind farm, located in Somerset County, Pa. Additionally, its geographic operations continue to expand west with the recent opening of a field development office in Denver.
