Landowner, LOS MIRASOLES WIND FARM | Rancher & Farmer in McCook, Texas

The income from ranching helps pay the bills but I wanted more. Everything I made from farming and ranching was just going to pay the land, and I plan on using the extra money from the wind farm to pay off what I already owe.

Personally, I would recommend other people put wind turbines on their property. I can’t see how anybody can say no. It’s added income for an area that gets hit with droughts.

Any extra money for somebody in agriculture is a plus. The stable income makes a difference.
