Iberdrola confirms commitment to wind energy in United States by installing three new Wind Farms

IBERDROLA, world leader in wind power, has commissioned three new wind farms in the United States, where it is already the second operator in the Renewables sector in terms of installed capacity, with over 5,700 megawatts (MW).

Installed capacity already in excess of 5,700 MW in U.S.

Its installed capacity has increased by 265 megawatts with the commissioning of the Groton, Hoosac and Manzana complexes

The Manzana wind farm is one of the company’s largest wind farm facilities in the world, with an installed capacity of 189 MW

IBERDROLA is still one of the leading wind power operators in the United States, which is a strategic country especially for the Renewables and Networks businesses

IBERDROLA, world leader in wind power, has commissioned three new wind farms in the United States, where it is already the second operator in the Renewables sector in terms of installed capacity, with over 5,700 megawatts (MW).

To be more specific, these new wind power facilities are: Manzana (California), Groton (New Hampshire) and Hoosac (Massachusetts) and their combined capacity is over 265 MW.

The Manzana wind power complex is one of the company’s largest wind farm facilities in the world, with an installed capacity of 189 MW. It is located in a very windy area of Kern County, close to the towns of Rosamond and Tehachapi. It is equipped with 126 wind turbines manufactured by the U.S. multinational General Electric, each with a unit capacity of 1.5 MW.

The Groton wind farm is located in the town of Groton in Grafton County. It is equipped with 24 wind turbines manufactured by Gamesa (G87 model, hub height 78 m and capacity 48 MW).

Finally, the Hoosac wind farm is located in the municipalities of Florida and Monroe, which belong to Berkshire County. This facility is equipped with 19 General Electric wind turbines (1.5 model, hub height 65 m), which provide a total installed capacity of 28.5 MW.

These three new complexes are proof of IBERDROLA’s loyalty to the United States, where it has been concentrating its expansion in the last five years. The U.S. is firmly committed to wind power, which is undoubtedly the most efficient and most mature of all the renewable energy sources.
