Panel hears about new wind project  

Steven DeWolf, president of Wind Tex Energy, L.P., presented county commissioners with information concerning a proposed wind power project in Nolan County.

DeWolf said the first project by Wind Tex Energy was the original development of the Camp Springs Wind Energy Center in Scurry County.

Construction of the farm began in 2006 and commercial operation is expected to begin in June. When complete, it will consist of 87 General Electric 1.5 megawatt wind turbines. Blattner & Sons was hired as the construction contractor and Invenergy Services LLC serves as project operator.

Invenergy Wind is a developer, owner and operator of utility-scale generation facilities.

DeWolf said a second project known as the Kent Springs project is under construction on the right side of Highway 84 across from Snyder USC.
A third project by Wind Tex Energy is located in Stanton.

“This is the fourth project for Wind Tex Energy,” DeWolf told commissioners.

The project is slated for 2008 and will erect between 80 to 140 turbines.
Continued development of renewable energy will spur significant economic development opportunities for Nolan County.

Wind Tex Energy is seeking a tax abatement for their project. DeWolf provided the commissioners with application fees, an order designing the reimbursement zone and a tax abatement agreement.

Commissioners approved a proposal – with a contingency clause – from INCA Corp. to provide a smoke detector system for three elevators inside the courthouse, two elevators on the east side and one elevator on the west side.
The cost of the system is $5,235 and the completion time will be one to two weeks. The motion was accepted contingent upon approval of purchase with security funds.
