E.ON Climate & Renewables NA (EC&R) has officially announced the completion of its Panther Creek wind farm in Big Spring, Texas. The Panther Creek complex is a three-phase project that consists of 305 turbines and is capable of generating 457.5 MW of electricity. The first two phases became operational in the first quarter of the year.

"The demand for clean energy is at an all-time high," says Steve Trenholm, CEO of EC&R NA. "EC&R is proud that the Panther Creek wind farm, as one of the largest in the country, will provide enough electricity to power 135,000 homes."

GE manufactured all of the 1.5 MW wind turbines, and D. H. Blattner constructed the site on behalf of EC&R.

The three phases of the Panther Creek wind farm are located in West Texas, with a footprint spanning parts of Glassrock, Sterling and Howard counties. Tax revenues from the Panther Creek complex have helped fund significant local initiatives.
