The Silver Star I Wind Power Project, a proposed 60 megawatt wind energy generation facility, is being developed by Clipper Windpower and its development partner to help meet Texas' growing demand for clean, sustainable electricity. The Silver Star I Project is sited on a high mesa and covers just over 11 square miles (7550 acres) of rolling hills and high ridges. The property utilized for the project is owned by 14 local landowners, many ranchers by trade, and held through long-term easement agreements. In addition to providing a secondary income to local landowners, the Silver Star I Project will provide rural economic development benefits to the area, including a substantial increase in the local tax base and the creation of high-paying jobs in construction, maintenance and operations.

Well known for being the 'Cowboy Capital' of Texas, this area is recognized as an attractive place to run a business, raise a family, or enjoy retirement years.
