INTRODUCING PATRIOT WIND
Apex Clean Energy is in the final stages of development for Patriot Wind, a wind energy project expected to generate 178 megawatts of clean, homegrown energy. Local wind data confirms that the area under consideration is ideal for a project of this size, which will produce enough safe, pollution-free energy to power up to 55,000 Texas homes.

ABOUT PATRIOT WIND
Patriot Wind could offer an opportunity to address the Texas Gulf Coast's growing electricity demand and diversify Nueces County’s economy, supporting the rural farm community.
Patriot Wind is expected to include 58 modern wind turbines, which will be interspersed across active farmland in Nueces County.
AN ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR NUECES COUNTY
Patriot Wind will create jobs and generate an entirely new source of long-term revenue for schools, governments, and landowners. The total direct financial impact to the region is likely to be in the millions of dollars over about 30 years, with additional indirect economic benefits greatly exceeding that number.
Landowners with wind facilities on their property will receive annual lease payments. These payments will continue over the projected 30-year lifespan of the wind farm, injecting millions of dollars into the economies of Nueces and nearby counties, as well as the city of Corpus Christi, to support local merchants, contractors, equipment suppliers, auto dealers, and others.
The power from Patriot Wind will be delivered into the electrical grid, which is managed by ERCOT. This local supply of energy will help build the community’s electric reliability with zero emissions or foreign fuels.
