Tri Global Energy, a Dallas-based utility-scale renewable energy company, continues as the leading developer of wind energy projects in Texas, according to the second quarter 2015 Market Report from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).
With over 2,400 MW of wind generation projects currently under construction in the state, TGE’s wind projects represent about a third of all wind power projects currently being developed in Texas and nearly 18 percent of all wind projects nationally.
“All signs point to the continued strong growth in demand for renewable energy, and we are aggressively working to expand our participation in the market for wind energy,” said John Billingsley, chairman and CEO of TGE.
“We’re also encouraged by the initial moves in Congress to extend the production tax credit and investment tax credit, which help put renewable energy projects on a more equal footing with fossil fuels,” Billingsley said.
Currently, there are more than 100 wind projects under construction in 24 states representing more than 13,600 MW of capacity. Texas leads the nation in wind project construction, followed by Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, and North Dakota, according to AWEA’s Market Report.
TGE is a utility-scale renewable energy company with wind projects in Texas and New Mexico covering approximately 1,000 square miles of land. Founded in 2009, the company’s goal is to develop clean energy at an affordable cost through the development of wind and solar projects and to directly benefit the communities, which provide the power. Through its proprietary “Wind Force Plan” business model, TGE allows landowners and communities to partner with and share ownership in wind energy projects.
