Los Vientos V
Located in Starr County, Texas, Duke Energy Renewables built Los Vientos V, a 110-megawatt wind project. Garland Power & Light, Greenville Electric Utility System and Bryan Texas Utilities are purchasing the output from Los Vientos V through a 25-year agreement. The facility produces enough emissions-free electricity to power about 33,000 average homes.
In addition to Los Vientos V, Duke Energy Renewables completed the 200-MW Los Vientos III wind project in 2015 and acquired half of the 211-MW Mesquite Creek wind site, which supplies energy to candy maker Mars Inc.
