Floydada, TX - A free meeting with speakers from Tres Amigas, a superstation which will serve as the nation's first renewable energy market hub, and OwnEnergy, a wind energy developer looking to help communities generate their own renewable power, will be hosted by Caprock Plains Wind Energy Association (CPWEA) on August 12th at 6p.m.
The meeting, which will serve as CPWEA's annual membership meeting, is open to the public and will be held at the Floyd County Friends Unity Center in Muncy, Texas on Hwy 70 and FM 786 between Floydada and Lockney.
Nathan Vajdos, a developer with OwnEnergy, will be the first speaker at the event. As a wind energy developer that specializes in community wind, OwnEnergy develops projects jointly with local community partners.
"Topics in Vajdos' presentation will include an overview of OwnEnergy, community wind, an outline of the development process; and a discussion on landowner options," said Kelly Ayers, CPWEA's executive director.
Also attending the meeting, Frank Barbera, director of reliability assurance with Tres Amigas, will give an update on recent progress. The idea behind the Tres Amigas SuperStation is to build the first ever interconnection that will connect America's three power grids (Western, Eastern and Texas Interconnections), providing a reliable, efficient way to transfer renewable energies between regions.
