The news story entitled, “Harvesting Cash in the Wind,” by Michaela McDonald/KLBK – Lubbock, TX aired earlier this week. This billion-dollar project and other Tri Global wind energy projects are in the process of changing the economic landscape of drought stricken West Texas. Watch the news story here.
The Hale Community Energy 122,000 acre wind project will interconnect with two national grids within one project area. This is key for readily delivering renewable wind energy to the urban areas that are hungry for it. The point of interconnection (“POI”) for the 200 MW first phase of the project is planned to be the Briscoe County Substation currently being constructed by Sharyland Utilities 20 miles northeast of the project. The POI for the 250 MW second phase is planned to be the SPP 345KV Tuco substation located adjacent to the southwest boundary of the project. A new 345kV transmission line is planned for completion by mid-2014 from Tuco to Woodward, Oklahoma, which will run through the southern part of the project.
