Wind project ‘little behind,’ official says  

Credit:  CNJ Staff | Clovis News Journal | October 15th, 2012 | www.cnjonline.com ~~

An energy company with plans to set up a wind farm just south of Grady is working on a tight schedule to get a pair of power plants built in the next few months.

Jesse Hopkins-Hoel, a project developer for National Renewable Soluti’litle

‘behindons, said the company is probably a little behind where it wants to be on finalizing a contractor for its Broadview Energy plants. The plants – separated due to interconnect agreements limiting plants to 10 megawatts of power produced annually – are expected to produce 19.8 megawatts of power combined.

The company also has not decided on a turbine supplier or an overall turbine design.

A dozen turbines on 1,680 acres of leased land near Curry Road 34 between Curry Roads Q and R.

“Things look good,” Hopkins-Hoel said, “but I don’t have these elements finalized just yet. Completion is one of those things running extremely tight at the moment.”

The Village of Grady council on Sept. 10 approved $27.5 million in industrial revenue bonds for Broadview Energy, with the company giving a $545,250 payment in lieu of taxes over a 20-year period, to be split equally by the village and the Grady school system.

Hopkins-Hoel said during that meeting he had cautious optimism a renewable energy tax credit that would benefit Broadview Energy would be renewed in 2013, but the goal was to complete the plants in 2012 in case the credit is not renewed.

The project is considered to be a first phase of the Broadview Energy’s long-term plan for up to 500 megawatts in Curry County and neighboring Deaf Smith County, Texas.
