- J.P. Morgan Invests $96.2 Million in 258 MW Wind Project
This financing represents the 5th transaction since December 2011 between J.P. Morgan and EC&R. The total value of those transactions is in excess of a half billion dollars. "The Panther Creek transaction complements E.ON`s overall strategic objectives", said Dr. Verena Volpert, Senior Vice President Finance, E.ON SE. "We`re delighted to see that our high-quality projects continue to attract positive attention from first –class financial services firms like J.P. Morgan."
Panther Creek is part of a billion-plus-dollar investment EC&R has made in the Big Spring, Texas area since 2006. The projects are located in Howard, Sterling and Glasscock Counties, Texas. Panther Creek's 172 GE 1.5 megawatt turbines generate enough energy to power approximately 77,000 homes.
"Wind energy generates cleaner, better, energy at an affordable price," said Steve Trenholm, Chairman, E.ON North America. "In addition, wind energy brings economic development in the form of jobs and increased tax revenue to rural areas like Big Spring. "
Panther Creek directly supports 20 employees including highly skilled technicians. In the last five years Panther Creek has generated over $12 million in property taxes for Howard, Sterling and Glasscock Counties. The revenue is used to support local schools as well as critical county services.
