AWE is one of the major shareholders (45%) in the Mariah Project in Texas, an ambitious project of up to 10,000 MW.
More than 400,000 acres of attractive land in the northern part of Texas have been leased. Construction permission has been given and grid connection for the first 1,200 MW is expected to be secured by the end of 2010. 3 years of wind data have been gathered. Wind speeds are very good and attractive, Power Purchase Agreements are obtainable.
AWE expects to be able to sell the first phase of the project in late 2010 or early 2011.
