Clearway Energy Group (Clearway) has announced that it has closed financing and begun repowering construction of its Cedro Hill wind farm in Webb County, Texas. The repower will increase Cedro Hill’s capacity to 160 MW from 150 MW.

The repower will replace the blades and nacelles with GE Vernova equipment across the site’s 100 turbines and responsibly manage all replaced equipment. In collaboration with Wanzek Construction, Inc., a MasTec Renewables company, Clearway is undertaking efforts to ensure that existing materials, including fibreglass, are recycled or diverted from landfills. Over 200 skilled labourers will support construction.

This project will mark Clearway’s fifth wind farm repower in Texas and sixth across its portfolio, amounting to over 700 MW. Upon completion, the repower will add another fifteen years to the project’s operating life and extend property taxes and landowner payments to Webb County by $27 million. Cedro Hill was originally built and commissioned in 2010, and its generated power was sold under a long-term power purchase agreement with CPS Energy. CPS Energy extended its existing agreement and continues to benefit from 100% of the power generated by the Cedro Hill wind farm.
