County Not Interested in Windmill Project Tax Abatement
Representatives from Invenergy and Ryan, LLC were told Monday that Reagan County is not interested in granting Invenergy a tax abatement for the Santa Rita Wind Project.
The discussion began after Ryan’s Evan Horn presented the group with a tax abatement application.
“I’m just one vote here,” County Judge Larry Isom said. “What happens to this project if we don’t approve the abatement?”
Horn said that there currently isn’t one wind project in Texas operating without a tax abatement agreement with the local county.
“If it is up to me then this will be the first,” Isom said.
