Portuguese utility EDP-Energias de Portugal SA is among the wind-farm owners that took a hit from the deep freeze that upended Texas last month.

The financial impact was in the low tens of millions of dollars, Chief Executive Officer Miguel Stilwell Andrade said in an interview. That’s a relatively modest hit compared to some other wind producers that racked up hundreds of millions in losses, he said.
