U.S. Congressman Jodey Arrington (R–TX 19th District) is the 2018 recipient of the first Tri Global Energy Wind Leadership Award, recognizing commitment to wind development and to the people who rely on wind farms to support their families and communities.
“I am honored to receive this award,” said Congressman Arrington. “West Texas is the food, fuel, and fiber capital of our nation. I’m proud that our region leads the nation in both renewable and fossil energy production. Harnessing the power of wind in West Texas has not only provided good jobs for rural America and helped power our state’s economy, but it has broadened and diversified our energy production, which will support our nation’s energy independence for future generations.”
Based out of Dallas, Tri Global Energy develops wind-power projects across Texas. The company’s goal is to develop clean energy at an affordable cost through the development of wind.
“We are very proud to recognize Jodey’s leadership in Texas wind energy,” said John Billingsley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tri Global Energy. “His efforts have helped Texas to retain its top ranking in wind energy development in the nation and globally. Jodey is a true leader who understands the impact of wind energy for Texas.”
