Dumas, Texas - Hopefully all eyes are now on Dumas and its' wind industry because of a recent award. Expansion Solutions Magazine, a national publication, has named the Dumas EDC to its' top five for success in bringing wind energy businesses to the area.
While the award is drawing more attention to the Dumas wind energy industry, it's also expected to draw attention to the people living there. Mike Running of the Dumas EDC says this booming business means big things for the Dumas community. He says, "For us, it's a no-brainer. You bring in business. You create jobs. You create more revenue. Your city improves. You get services that people want and desire and you get more rooftops. And with more rooftops you get the restaurants, you get the things that people really want. The bigger city amenities."
