Edinburg, Texas, June 20, 2011 — Baryonyx Corp., of Austin, Texas, has announced submission of applications for three wind energy sites in South Texas to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The wind farms are planned for development across more than 60,000 acres of submerged land under lease from the Texas General Land Office and, if fully developed, could have an installed capacity of up to 3 GW — enough electricity to power around 1.2 million homes.
In addition, RSTEC is also actively working with other companies that will complement the wind farm project. "These wind projects represent a huge employment and investment potential for Rio South Texas, if we can focus on attraction of component manufacturers for the turbines and towers and other equipment," says RSTEC member Eduardo A. Campirano, CEO and Port Director of the Port of Brownsville. "RSTEC just returned from the AWEA WindPower 2011 Show in California, and discovered many companies interested in the Rio South Texas region."
Located at the southernmost tip of Texas, bordering Mexico along the Rio Grande River, the Rio South Texas area offers an ideal location for companies seeking access to Mexico and the U.S. South and Midwest markets. RSTEC is dedicated to the promotion of new business opportunities and job creation through private investment in the region, and welcome the Baryonyx wind farms to our prospering region.
