VIDEO: AEDC votes to pay $1.5 million to Canadian wind company coming to Amarillo

AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - A company based in Canada may be getting $1.5 million in economic incentives to establish a U.S. headquarters in Amarillo.

The Amarillo Economic Development Corporation board voted today to pay rent for the business and $10,000 per job for up to 150 jobs created by Suspendem.

AEDC President and CEO Kevin Carter said the company repairs wind turbine blades and the nacelles they are attached to.

They do the work in the field at wind farms.

Payments would stretch over five years and come after the jobs are filled.

The Amarillo City Council will now have to approve the deal.
