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.
