The Birds and the Peetz Wind Farm
Xcel Energy, FPL Energy and Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter broke ground on Wednesday for what will be the nation’s second-largest wind energy facility at Peetz, Colorado.
“Today we are making history,” Gov. Ritter is quoted as saying in a release. “This project will be the largest wind farm in the state and second-largest in the nation. It will have the longest transmission line in the world. Along with our tremendous agricultural crops, Colorado is the 11th windiest and 6th sunniest state in the nation. Our intellectual resources are second-to-none.
