Powerful things are happening in the Panhandle, as developers break ground on a 218 megawatt wind project that will provide energy to sixty thousand Texas homes.
"This is really kind of the end of a journey that's taken ten years. You know we started here with a commitment to the local area," Hunter Armistead, with Pattern Energy said.
This new wind project in Carson County will send energy onto the Texas Competitive Renewable Energy Zone, also known as CREZ lines. People in large Texas cities will use Panhandle wind energy, but Carson County communities will see an economic boost...with more jobs and an increased property tax base.
