Mesa Power, a Dallas-headquartered wind developer, has submitted documents to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) to add 4,000 MW of wind-generated electricity to the power grid in Texas. The filing with ERCOT details plans for Mesa Power's wind project, which, when completed as projected in late 2011, would be the world's largest wind farm, according to the company.

The project will include up to 2,700 turbines on up to 200,000 acres in Roberts and adjacent counties in the Texas Panhandle. Mesa Power says that it plans to construct a power line and deliver the electricity from the wind farm to either the Oklaunion or Anna substations.

Company officials add that the project is well under way, with feasibility studies and wind tower data collection continuing.
