A federal court in Texas recently dismissed a lawsuit against a wind farm proposal on the Texas Gulf Coast according to developer Babcock & Brown of Houston.

"From the initiation of our development efforts with the Kenedy Foundation, Babcock & Brown has been committed to the responsible development of a world-class wind farm for South Texas," says Hunter Armistead, head of Babcock & Brown’s North American energy group. "Our intention has always been to deliver the benefits of renewable energy, while minimizing any impact to the environment. We were meticulous in the way we approached the development of this wind farm, which we believe will be used as a model for future wind farms around the country."

The company says the 283 MW Gulf Wind Farm will be operational before the end of the year.
