Airtricity announced the construction of its largest wind farm to date: The 209-megawatt (MW) Roscoe Wind Farm will provide power to TXU Wholesale, a subsidiary of TXU Corp., in a five-year sales contract. When complete, the project area will stretch into three counties and cover nearly 30,000 acres.

"We are well on our way to more than doubling our wind power purchases to 1,500 MW and increasing our investments in alternative energy." -- Mike McCall, TXU Wholesale, chairman and CEO
