Tri Global Energy preserves its position amongst wind energy development projects that are under construction in Texas, states a report by American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), – which is the trade association of the U.S. wind energy industry.
Following this, the Dallas-based renewable energy company is spreading wings beyond its home state. Tri Global Energy has announced the construction of a 100-megawatt Sugar Loaf Wind Energy Project in Nebraska, the company’s maiden wind energy project beyond Texas. The Sugar Loaf Wind Energy Project along with its current wind power projects under construction makes the company’s wind portfolio over 2,900 MW of wind energy.
Wind Energy Represents Key Renewable Source-based Energy in Texas
Tri Global energy has been making strides to contribute towards the growing energy needs of Americans. The wind energy projects of the company not only foster economic development, but demonstrates the company’s responsibility towards harnessing renewable energy and environmental sustainability.
Tri Global Energy’s wind projects account for more than half of wind energy projects that are under construction in Texas. At present, the state has almost 5,337 MW of wind projects that are under development. With a 41 percent increase on a year-on-year basis, the total capacity of wind projects in the U.S. is 25,819 MW. This includes the total wind power projects in Texas.
Not only this, wind energy has been crucial in Texas. It represents almost half of the energy generated from renewable sources in the state. This clearly makes Texas leading among other states that have wind energy projects under development. Texas stands as the sixth-biggest wind energy producer globally, following India and just before the U.K.
