Duke Energy to Build and Operate 110-Megawatt Wind Farm in Texas

Sept. 3 (Bloomberg) — Duke Energy Corp., the largest U.S.
utility owner by market value, will build and operate a 110-megawatt wind farm in southern Texas.

The Los Vientos V project will use 55 2-megawatt Vestas
Wind Systems A/S turbines and be completed late next year,
Charlotte, North Carolina-based Duke Energy Renewables said
today in a statement.

Los Vientos V will have the capacity to power about 33,000
homes. Garland Power & Light, Greenville Electric Utility System
and Bryan Texas Utilities have agreed to buy electricity under
25-year contracts.

After Los Vientos III and Los Vientos IV, both of which are
under construction, and Los Vientos V are operational, Duke’s
U.S. wind-power capacity will exceed 2,100 megawatts, according
to the statement.
