- Palmas Altas Wind Farm and La Chalupa Wind Farm
Pushing ACCIONA's US portfolio over 1,000 MW of wind energy.
In 2019, ACCIONA brought the Palmas Altas Wind Farm online. In 2020, the company is increasing its investment in Cameron County with the La Chalupa Wind Farm. When operational, La Chalupa will be the single largest wind farm in ACCIONA's North American portfolio at 198 MW. Together the two wind farms will offer 343 MW of capacity, generating enough electricity for 97,000 Texas homes. Palmas Altas and La Chalupa will feature 109 wind turbines manufactured by Nordex. Palmas Altas and La Chalupa are ACCIONA's second and third projects in Cameron County, where the company has operated the San Roman Wind Farm since 2016. When completed, La Chalupa will raise the company’s wind energy capacity in the US to 1,064 MW, with ten wind farms in six different states.
