With new air support from TXU Energy (Abilene, TX), Dyess Air Force Base is now being powered by the wind under the largest single renewable energy contract in US history. TXU Energy and Dyess Air Force Base announced that a wind power contract will provide 100 percent of the energy needs for the base (78 million kilowatt-hours annually) for two years. The contract will help the base meet and surpass US Air Force and government renewable energy goals.

"TXU Energy is pleased to be the provider for the largest consumer purchase of wind energy in US history," said Rob McCoy, retail president, TXU Energy. "TXU Energy has been a national leader in wind development for years and we look forward to more opportunities for wind purchases in the future."
