TXU Energy (Dallas, TX) and Cielo Wind Power (Austin, TX) have announced an agreement that will result in the construction of a 240-MW wind farm in western Texas. Cielo Wind Power will construct the project and TXU Energy will purchase the power.

The Noelke Hill Wind Ranch will be one of the largest in the United States. It will use 240 wind turbines, each with a capacity of 1 MW. Mitsubishi was selected as the turbine supplier. The wind farm will be located south of Rankin, and is scheduled to be operational by September 2003.
