Pattern Energy Group will need about 200 workers for the construction of a $400 million wind farm in Texas' Carson County, a facility that will need at least a dozen workers to operate it when it is complete. The county will receive $800,000 from Pattern Energy to start a new fund, the developer added. The county has seen rapid growth in wind development and "it's really a growing trend we're going to see continue as long as Congress continues with the Production Tax Credit," said Steve Myers, executive director of Class 4 Winds.
