Wind Turbines Going Up
Construction of the Mesquite Creek Wind, LLC, project in eastern Dawson County near the caprock is well underway. Approximately 30 wind turbines could be seen this past week along U.S. Highway 180 between Key and the caprock. A pickup can be seen driving just to the left of the generator, which will be placed at the top of the wind turbine pictured. The rotor blades also are seen laying on the ground to the right of the shaft for the wind turbine. Construction of the wind farm, consisting of 118 wind turbines, is expected to be completed by the end of this year. (Herrel Hallmark/Press-Reporter)
