AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - America's only plant for disassembling and assembling nuclear weapons will soon be home to the largest federally owned wind farm.
Ground was broken Tuesday for a wind farm that will have five turbines located on 1,500 acres east of the Pantex Plant, about 18 miles northeast of Amarillo in the Texas Panhandle.
A news release from the plant says the turbines will generate about 47 million kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, or enough to power nearly 3,500 homes, and supply more than 60% of the plant's annual electricity needs.
The wind farm will help the plant achieve President Barack Obama's directive that the federal government get 20% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.
The project is expected to be completed by July 2014.
