Scout Clean Energy, a Colorado-based renewables company, signed a virtual power purchase agreement (VPPA) with AdventHealth for a 90-megawatt (MW) portion of Scout’s Heart of Texas wind farm, according to a Feb. 1 press release.

The project is expected to generate 380,000 megawatt-hours of renewable energy electricity annually to support 40% of AdventHealth’s electricity needs.

Heart of Texas is a 180 MW wind farm located near McCullock County, Texas. The wind farm consists of 64, 300-ft tall wind turbines supporting 18 landowners. Based on a U.S. EPA calculator, the Heart of Texas farm generates enough clean energy for the ERCOT grid to power approximately 67,000 homes, the release stated.

“VPPAs are a powerful opportunity to address a leading cause of climate change quickly and positively – greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation,” said Rob Roy, senior vice president and chief investment officer for AdventHealth.

Heart of Texas is owned and operated by Scout Clean Energy, a portfolio company managed by Brookfield Asset Management, a global leader of renewable power and decarbonization solutions.
