Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) Stops Work On Wichita Falls Wind Farm

Florida Power and Light Company announced it will cancel a 35,000 acre, 210 MW wind power project in Wilbarger County, TX, near Wichita Falls. The project was canceled due to the issues the country has been facing in financial markets as of late, as well as area limitations on the ability to transmit power once it’s generated.

According to Steve Stangel, an FPL spokesman, the company may pick the project back up in the future:

“It is certainly our intention to build this project at some point in the future, but that will hinge on several things. Our markets have really changed in the last six months or so. I can’t give you a time frame on when that would occur.”
