Benefits of partnering with Ørsted
Landowner & Community Benefits
Participating landowners will receive long-term, consistent income from the project that does not impact other sources of income from their land.
In addition, Bee County, Pawnee School District, and Coastal Bend College stand to receive tens of millions in new tax revenue during the 30-year lifespan of the project. This is stable revenue that county officials and school districts can count on as soon as the project becomes operational in 2022.

Ørsted’s experience operating renewable energy facilities throughout the United States ensures that policies and procedures are in place to deliver a safe and effective project.

Ørsted is dedicated to operating a wind energy project that creates long-term value for the land and long-term benefits for the community. Operations & maintenance teams are deployed regularly to guarantee site safety and peak performance. The company is committed to a safe and efficient construction process and conducts thorough analyses to ensure the impacts on the community, wildlife, and land are minimal for our neighbors in Bee County.
Ørsted listens to the community and is committed to being a good neighbor. We analyze the potential traffic, economic, and environmental impacts during development. Throughout the construction and operation of the project, Ørsted will hold regular meetings with Bee County officials so that a direct line of communication is maintained. We are also available to meet with neighbors to address any concerns.
Texas law governing wind farm leases specify termination rights and restoration. Upon termination or project completion, Ørsted will remove facilities down to 3 feet below grade.
