On March 29, Tri Global Energy announced that it remained the leading developer of wind energy projects under construction in Texas, citing the U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2016 Market Report from AWEA.

The firm stressed that its 3,100-MWs of wind power projects currently under construction in Texas represent nearly 60 percent of all wind power projects being developed in the state.

Tri-Global, referring to the AWEA numbers, noted that Texas has a total of 5,400 MW of wind projects currently under construction, and that a total of 10,432 MW of wind projects, including those in Texas, are now under construction in the U.S.

John Billingsley, Chairman and CEO at Tri Global Energy observed:

Texas is an energy powerhouse and that includes the state’s leadership in wind energy. There is more wind energy production, and there are more wind workers than in any other state.  The 3,100 MW of wind projects that Tri Global has put into operation, construction or financing since 2014, and the hundreds of resulting jobs that have been created, have been a significant contributor to this achievement. For many rural communities in Texas, wind is critical to economic development – and I expect this to remain the case for some time to come,” says Billingsley.  “To date our projects have created over $26 million of direct payments to our participating landowners and community members in Texas. Based on our success here, we are now expanding our presence in other rural communities across the country.
