The amount purchased will provide enough energy to power around

25,000 homes in the Greater San Antonio area. The 115.5 MW from

Papalote Creek boosts CPS Energy’s renewable energy capacity to 703.7

MW.

Construction of the Papalote Creek wind farm is underway, and the

project is expected to come on line by fall of 2009. E.ON operates six

farms in the U.S., including Roscoe Phase 1 and 2, Forest Creek,

Panther Creek Phase 1 and Sand Bluff in Texas and Munnsville in New

York.
