Pantex Will Soon Be Going Green With A New Wind Farm

Ground broke earlier today for a wind farm that will have five turbines to power our nuclear plant. The wind farm will be located on the 1,500 acres East of the Pantex Plant,18 miles Northeast of Amarillo, Texas.

Pantex is the only plant for disassembling and assembling nuclear weapons in America. The plant officials have reported that the turbines will generate about 47 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. Enough to power nearly 3,500 homes, and supply more than 60% of the plant’s annual electricity.

The wind farm is expected to be completed by July 2014. It will be the largest federally owned wind farm in America. This will also achieve the directive in place that our federal government gets 20% of its electricity from a renewable source by 2020.
