Westerly Wind, through its subsidiary Westerly Route 66 LLC and development partner, Big Sky Wind Energy LLC, has sold a project in Texas to a subsidiary of First Wind Holdings LLC.

Route 66 Wind Power is a late-stage wind farm development project located on approximately 20,000 acres in Armstrong and Carson counties, east of Amarillo, Texas. According to Westerly, Route 66 Wind Power has the potential capacity of up to 200 MW and is expected to deliver energy to the ERCOT power markets through the new Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) transmission system.

“The Route 66 Wind Power project is well positioned to capture the excellent wind resource in the Texas Panhandle, and we are pleased to have sold this project to an experienced wind farm owner-operator such as First Wind,” comments Westerly CEO Steve Schauer.
