BP broke ground on its first wind project in Texas. The project, named Silver Star I, is located 80 miles southwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area.

The 60MW, US$ 100 million project is owned 85% by BP Alternative Energy and 15% by Clipper Windpower. Silver Star I will utilise 24 Clipper 2.5MW wind turbine generators and will be the first application at scale of Clipper's new C-96 wind turbine technology for BP. The project is expected to be commercially operational in the first quarter of 2008. The project will employ over 100 people during its construction.
