China Funding Texas Wind Project

China Funding Texas Wind Project

The 600-megawatt wind farm, which is scheduled to begin construction in March of next year, is a joint venture between Shenyang Power Group of China, U.S. Renewable Energy Group, and Austin, Texas-based Cielo Wind Power LP.

The $1.5 billion USD project will be largely funded by Chinese financiers. China has been accelerating construction of wind farms throughout the country. It passed the U.S. this year to become the world’s largest market for wind energy.

The farm has been reported to create 300 temporary jobs and about 30 permanent jobs. It will use turbines manufactured in China.
