Here Enterprises’ strategy is to co-locate wind energy facilities with commercial businesses in order to generate cashflow from the production of clean energy as well as from the businesses operating onsite. The Company recently acquired its first wind energy development project, Cycle Ranch, where it intends to develop a wind farm at Cycle Ranch Motocross Park, a popular commercial speedway with ongoing revenue near Floresville, Texas.
According to the World Wind Energy Association, the wind market saw robust growth in the first half of 2010, with approximately 16 gigawatts of new capacity added worldwide. The total capacity of all wind turbines installed reached 175 gigawatts in mid-2010, compared with 159 gigawatts by the end of 2009. Global capacity is expected to reach nearly 200 gigawatts by year end. (World Wind Energy Association, ’16 Gigawatts of Wind Power Added in First Half of 2010′, October 19, 2010)
The United States added 395 megawatts (MW) of wind power in the third quarter of 2010, according to the American Wind Energy Association. With 1,634 MW installed through the end of September, the total installed utility-scale wind capacity through the third quarter was 36,698 MW. Over 6,300 MW is now under construction, so the U.S. is likely to end 2010 with over 5,000 MW completed. (AWEA, Third Quarter Market Report, October 2010)
