DeWind Inc., a subsidiary of Composite Technology Corp., has signed a memorandum of intent with the city of Sweetwater, Texas, to establish a wind turbine demonstration site on city-owned land.

In association with Texas State Technical College, the company plans to install its 2 MW, 60 Hertz DeWind D8.2 prototype on the Sweetwater site this fall. Further development and prototype turbines will be installed at the site over the next five years, DeWind adds.

Sweetwater is in a leading wind generation region, the city notes. Nolan County alone would currently rank as the seventh largest "nation" in wind energy generation - with more than 1,500 MW.
