E.ON announced the Cranell Windfarm, a 220 megawatt project, located in Refugio County, Texas, is under construction and it expects to commission the project before the end of 2019.

"We're excited to announce another one of the projects in our Texas coastal pipeline is under construction and will be brought online this year," said Silvia Ortin, COO North America. "We look forward to the creation of local, high-paying jobs during our operation phase and the chance to employ 200 to 300 people during the construction phase of the project."

The project, located in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) south market, is powered by 100 Vestas V120 turbines and will generate enough electricity to power more than 66,000 homes. With the addition of Cranell, E.ON will have a total generation capacity of more than 3,000 MW of wind power online in the state of Texas.

"Refugio County welcomes E.ON and congratulates them on the commencement of construction and pending operation of the Cranell Wind Farm," said Refugio County Judge Robert Blaschke. "We look forward to a long-term relationship establishing sustainable jobs and strong-minded community partnerships."

E.ON recently announced the start of construction on another South Texas onshore windfarm, Peyton Creek, a 151 MW project in Matagorda County, which also is expected to come online by the end of 2019.

E.ON has developed, built, and operates more than 3,800 MW of solar, wind and energy storage projects across the United States, with more on the way.
