Carson County Texas: Wind Project One of the First to Use New Transmission Lines
Domestic Fuel reported financing is complete, and construction has begun on the Panhandle Wind project in Carson County, northeast of Amarillo. Pattern Energy Group LP said the project will be among the first to use the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) transmission infrastructure according to a recent article by Greentechmedia.
The Panhandle CREZ lines primarily move wind power from wide, open, windy places like the Texas Panhandle, to metropolitan spaces like Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, and San Antonio.
