Texas Windmill, Wind Energy in Texas, Texas First Wind Farm

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Located in the Delaware Mountains of West Texas, close to the Guadalupe Mountains National park, this successful wind farm is only a few miles from the highest peak in the Lone Star State. The farm is owned by the General Land Office & Lower Colorado River Authority. It is a 35 MW producing successful venture located in Culberson County, Texas. This farm has been cranking out power since go-live in 1995.wind farm texas

The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) teamed with the General Land Office GLO) and private industry to develop this commercial wind power plant, the first in Texas. The Texas Wind Power Project, located in Culberson County in West Texas, has 112 Kenetech 33M-VS wind turbines capable of generating 35 megawatts of electricity — enough to power 12,000 to 15,000 homes. Since the ribbon-cutting for the Texas Wind Power Project in 1995, the Texas’ Permanent School Fund earned more than $750.000 from it. The project is expected to earn more than $3 million for the PSF and create $300 million in increased economic activity over the 25-year lease period.

Well, I might as well let people know.  This Texas’ Permanent School Fund sounds great, but fact is, the CCISD, Culberson County Independant School District is very poor and having a hard time.  I can’t see what benefit that this wind farm has brought the local community of Van Horn, the county seat.  Aside from a guy or two that now have jobs watching the wind farm and maintaining, the schhol district is still very poor and not benefiting from the wind farm in any visible way.  The power in fact is transmitted all the way to Austin on some of the county’s wind farms.

Texas Wind Farm, Indian Mesa, Pecos County

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

Wind farms in west Texas have been located in mountainous areas near Fort Davis, Guadalupe Peak, the mesas east of Fort Stockton, and near Big Spring and Sweetwater. That the initial investment in Fort Stockton was about $200 million.indan-mesa-wind-farm-pecos-county-texas

The Indian Mesa Wind Farm is located in Pecos County, Texas. The project was completed in 2001. One hundred twenty-five Vestas V-47 wind turbines produce up to 83 Megawatts of electricity. Electricity produced by the project is purchased by the Lower Colorado River Authority, Austin, Texas, and TXU Energy Trading Company, Dallas, Texas. The project is connected to the transmission lines of American Electric Power subsidiary West Texas Utilities. The project is built on land owned by local ranching families and by the University of Texas.

The successful wind plant funded by Fort Stockton on I-10 in eastern Pecos County, and the plant near Big Spring generate revenue by selling electricity to electric companies.  These funds are to pay the loan back within a few years.  After the financing is paid off, the revenue would be a benefit, an income.

Much of West Texas is suitable for wind farms since there is plenty of wind and a good infrastructure of high voltage transmission lines.  Texas lawmakers created a hungry market when they wrote a law nine years ago that requires utilities to buy renewable power. On the federal level, a tax credit encourages investors to put money into wind power.
