Sprint and Duke Energy Renewables a commercial business unit of Duke Energy announced a 12 year virtual power purchase agreement for 173.3 MW of new wind energy. Duke Energy Renewables will build, own and operate the 182-MW Maryneal Windpower project located in Nolan County, Texas, that will come online in 2020. The agreement will enable Sprint to significantly reduce its carbon footprint and achieve approximately 30% renewable energy for its total electricity portfolio. The project will provide enough renewable energy to power the equivalent of more than 54,000 US homes and will reduce carbon emissions equivalent to removing more than 96,000 cars from the road annually.

The Maryneal project increases Duke Energy Renewables’ US wind capacity to more than 3,000 MW. Full notice to proceed with construction will begin in early 2020 and the wind project will be fully operational by December 2020. During peak construction, the project will create approximately 200 jobs.

Nordex Acciona will supply 38 4.8 MW wind turbines for the site. Wanzek Construction is the contractor for the project.
