In 2016, Los Vientos III, IV and V brought Duke Energy’s total wind-generated capacity to more than 2,100 megawatts, which firmly established Duke Energy Renewables in the top 10 for wind production in the country.
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.
