TreeHugger reports that construction of a large new wind farm has finished in Texas - World's Largest Wind Farm (781.5 MW) Completed in Texas by E.ON Renewables.
Living up to its bigger is better (for better and worse) reputation, Texas can now boast having the world's current largest wind farm. E.ON Climate & Renewables has announced the completion of the 781.5 MW Roscoe wind complex, which is expected to generate enough power for more than 230,000 average homes:
Sticking with the bigger is better theme: E.ON boasts that the completion of the Roscoe wind farm took an expenditure of more than $1 billion, negotiations with more than 300 individual landowners and management of 500 workers. ...
Though it's still a couple years from coming online, E.ON also touted the fact that it has (finally!!!) begun construction on the London Array offshore wind farm, the first 630 MW phase of which alone will make it the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
