Palmas Altas Wind Farm

Renewable energy for more than 43,000 homes in Texas

ACCIONA has started building the Palmas Altas Wind Farm, the company’s latest wind energy project in Texas. Grid connection is planned for November 2019. The wind farm will have a capacity of 145 MW and will supply enough renewable energy to power over 43,000 homes. It features forty-six wind turbines manufactured by Nordex. Palmas Altas represents continued investment by ACCIONA in South Texas. The company recently completed the San Roman Wind Farm, located nearby in Cameron County. This latest installation raises the company’s wind energy capacity in the US to 866 MW, with nine wind farms in six different states.
