Company Announces Expansion Beyond Texas

DALLAS (August 9, 2017) -- Tri Global Energy, the Dallas-based renewable energy company, has maintained its position as the leading developer of wind energy projects under construction in Texas, according to the U.S. Wind Industry Second Quarter 2017 Market Report from the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the nation’s trade association of the U.S. wind energy industry.

Tri Global Energy also announced today its expansion into Nebraska – the 100-megawatt (MW) Sugar Loaf Wind Energy Project. This is the first wind energy project for TGE beyond Texas borders. With the addition of the Sugar Loaf wind project, Tri Global Energy increases its wind portfolio to more than 2,900 MW of total wind power nationally.

“We are proud to add our Nebraska project as we continue to help meet the growing energy needs of Americans with wind energy,” said John Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Tri Global Energy. “Our company’s wind projects not only foster economic development, but they also demonstrate Tri Global Energy’s commitment to renewable energy and environmental respect.”  

TGE’s Texas wind projects represent over one half of all wind power projects being developed in the state. Texas has nearly 5,337 MW of wind projects currently under construction. A total of 25,819 MW of wind projects, including those in Texas, are now under construction in the U.S., a 41 percent year-over-year increase.  

Wind accounts for nearly all of the electricity generated from renewable resources in Texas, which easily leads all other states in wind power projects under construction. Globally, Texas is the sixth-biggest producer of wind electricity, following India and just ahead of the UK.
