Pantex and Texas Tech partner to increase the use of renewable wind energy

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - The Pantex plant is making a push to increase the use of renewable wind energy at their plant.

Officials signed an agreement Friday with Texas Tech University to build a five-turbine wind farm, east of Pantex's main plant.
     
Once completed, the wind farm will provide about 60 percent of the plant's annual electrical energy needs.
     
The University will use information from the wind farm for renewable energy research.
     
The project is expected to be completed by this summer.
