OwnEnergy & Horn Wind Complete 51-MW Windthorst Project

OwnEnergy and Horn Wind have completed development of a 51-megawatt (MW) wind power project in Texas. The Windthorst-1 project is located near Windthorst, Texas, just outside of Greater Dallas, in the ERCOT North Zone.

OwnEnergy’s strategy is to co-own and operate its projects in conjunction with local partners and this commitment was maintained through the sale of the asset as OwnEnergy and Horn Wind retain a long-term interest in the project.

OwnEnergy and Horn Wind developed the project as a joint venture and have subsequently sold a majority stake in the project to a global renewable energy company.

“The completion of development of Windthorst-1 is a great success for Horn Wind,” said Jimmy Horn, president of Horn Wind. “This is the first of five regional wind projects Horn Wind is developing.  Moving this project to the next stage allows Horn Wind to continue to grow and to support our local landowners and communities.”
