Lincoln Clean Energy (LCE), a subsidiary of Ørsted and leading developer of U.S. renewables, has achieved commercial operation of its Lockett Wind project, a 184MW wind farm in Wilbarger County, Texas.
The project will generate over 700,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy per year—enough to power the equivalent of 70,000 U.S. homes. With the addition of Lockett Wind to its portfolio, LCE now has more than 1GW of operational assets across the United States along with over 1.3GWs in construction and late stage development.
“I am proud of the LCE team and our wider Ørsted colleagues in completing another safe, on time and on budget construction project, and to cross the milestone of a gigawatt operating portfolio,” commented LCE CEO Declan Flanagan.
