TXU, Shell to build massive Panhandle wind farm  

TXU Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell said Friday they plan to build a massive wind farm in the Panhandle.

The companies are not saying how much they will invest, who will own the wind farm and when, exactly, they might start building the project. They’re also not saying who will supply the windmills.

Here’s what they’ve revealed: Shell WindEnergy Inc. and TXU’s Luminant will develop the 3,000 megawatt wind farm in Briscoe County. That equates to about 1,000 wind turbines.

A spokesman for Luminant said the companies will probably break ground in around 2008 or 2009, and TXU would own some portion of the project.

The companies said in a joint press release Friday they will work together on other renewable energy projects around Texas, as well.

They are considering a technology that can store compressed air, which can be used to generate electricity at a wind farm, improving reliability.
