IRION COUNTY – Sustainable energy developer Invenergy began construction on a new 300-megawatt (MW) wind farm between Mertzon and Big Lake, about 70 miles west of San Angelo.
The Santa Rita East wind farm, located north of Barnhart, is scheduled to come online mid-2019.
In 2018, Invenergy announced three virtual-power purchase agreements for Santa Rita East totaling 260 MW. The agreements were with Mexico-based bakery giant Grupo Bimbo for 100 MW, pharmaceutical maker Merck for 60 MW, and health care-focused Novartis of Switzerland for 100 MW.
