The Underwood Law Firm has been an industry leader in wind energy development in the Texas Panhandle since 2005, including involvement in the developing, financing, and purchase and sale of wind energy projects. The best wind resources in the United States are known as the “wind corridor,” which begins in the Texas Panhandle and runs north to the Canadian border. The Public Utility Commission of Texas’ Competitive Renewable Energy Zones (CREZ) Project resulted in the construction of the CREZ transmission lines (CREZ line) that carry electricity from the Texas Panhandle to the more densely populated areas in Texas (e.g., Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio) have resulted in a boom in wind development in the Texas Panhandle and South Plains. In addition to the CREZ lines, the Southwest Power Pool continues its efforts to expand transmission facilities to further develop the excellent renewable resources in the region.

The Underwood Law Firm has represented and assisted numerous landowners, school districts, hospital districts, counties, and developers navigate wind and solar opportunities. Because Amarillo’s service area is larger than simply the Texas Panhandle, Underwood has been actively involved in wind development in Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Colorado.
