Mayor Glen Robertson said a contract has been signed for our homes to receive power from wind turbines.
He said it's the most effective source of energy right now because it's renewable and most importantly affordable, meaning a cheaper bill for you to pay.
Mayor Robertson announced today the West Texas Municipal Power Agency which includes Lubbock, Brownfield, Floydada and Tulia will receive just over ten percent of wind energy starting in 2019.
He said as consumers we won't see any outward signs of the change.
However, he said this plan was bought at an attractive price and we will have a percentage of our bill staying at a cheaper fixed rate for at least 13 years.
"The great thing is not only is it good clean energy, but it will act towards volatility to our gas prices as we look at trying to solve the generation problem for 2019, that's going to be a giant factor," said Mayor Robertson.
Wind turbines in Lubbock won't be powering the city come 2019, that energy will be coming from a wind farm in Elk City, Oklahoma.
