BP Building 4th Wind Farm In North Texas

FORT WORTH (AP) – Texas is getting another wind farm.

BP Wind Energy on Wednesday announced construction has begun on its 90-turbine Trinity Hills wind farm in Archer and Young counties. The site is about 90 miles northwest of Fort Worth.

BP Wind Energy says the complex will have a generating capacity of 225 megawatts, producing enough electricity to support more than 65,000 homes.

Two of BP’s wind farms became operational in 2008. The third is expected to be in commercial operation by the end of 2011.

    Dear Sirs: I am a member of the Graham Kiwanis Club. We are interested in having a Program presented on the Wind Farm of North Texas. Is there someone in your Company that would be able to present this program? We could advertise in the Graham Leader for other interested persons to attend. At present we have an opening on May 26th or sometime in the month of June.
    We meet on Thursdays, have lunch and then a program.
    Thank you for your time and interest.
