A Texas firm has won a bid to build a wind farm in northeastern New Mexico.

State Land Commissioner Ray Powell announced Monday that Triangle Gallegos of Hereford, Texas, will be developing the project on 19,000 acres of State Trust Land and 31,000 acres of private land 35 miles west of Clayton in Union County.

The lease on trust land will generate about $47 million in revenue for state schools.
