A massive West Texas wind farm billed as the largest in the world is up and running.

German company E.ON Climate and Renewables on Thursday announced the completion of the 100,000-acre wind farm near Roscoe that spans four counties.

The company says the 627-turbine wind farm is now producing energy. It has the capacity to generate 781.5 megawatts, enough electricity to power more than 230,000 homes.

Texas is the nation's top wind power-producing state.

Roscoe is about 220 miles west of Dallas.
