H-E-B in Wind-Power Study
San Antonio H.E. Butt Grocery Co. (H-E-B) and the Wind Energy Corp. are joining forces to study the commercial application of wind energy.
Beginning in March, Wind Energy will install a wind turbine at H-E-B's Weslaco Retail Support Center and spend 18 to 24 months collecting data and researching the wind-power potential.
H-E-B's Weslaco, Texas, site was chosen over 18 other potential H-E-B pilot sites in Texas because of its wind conditions and secure location.
The project will allow Wind Energy to measure how much electricity the system will provide and examine the possibilities for future power distribution.
