AEP and TXU expand West Texas wind project

The Trent Mesa Project, a wind-power generation facility under construction near Abilene, Texas, is expanded to 150,000kw of production from 130,000kw under an agreement between TXU Corp. and American Electric Power, the builder, owner and operator of the facility. Previous plans at the project included this addition to increase the electric generation by 15%. The planned expansion adds 13 wind turbines to the 87 turbines currently being installed at Trent Mesa, located just south of Interstate 20, about 24 miles west of Abilene. The additional 20,000kw of production capacity is enough to provide renewable energy to supply the annual equivalent electric needs of 5000 homes. The expansion will increase AEP’s investment in the Trent Mesa Project to approximately USD 160 million.
