RWE AG, a German multinational energy company, started construction on the wind farm in May 2007 and completed it in 2009 according to Power-Technology.com. When the construction was completed, the farm was the largest onshore wind farm in the world. Roscoe is still one of the largest wind farms in the world. Today, 400 landowners share the 100,000 acres the wind farm is on, and they all receive royalties from the money generated by the wind turbines. A cotton farmer who lived in the area initialed and put the whole project together.

The 627 wind turbines are sprawled across 4 different counties in West Texas. According to Solaripedia.com the turbines range in size from about 350 feet to 415 feet tall and are generally spaced about 900 feet apart. They power over 200,000 homes.

Forbes.com stated that Texas has over 10,000 wind turbines and now produces more wind power than 25 U.S. states produce from all power sources combined!

Visiting The Wind Farm

Seeing the farm in person was an awesome sight. The turbines at the Roscoe Wind Farm extended as far as I could see in every direction. The turbines are right off the roads that run through that area of Texas. Some are even off of dirt roads.
