ERCOT Selected CREZ Zones

ERCOT’s study identified 25 areas in the state with significant potential for wind development, but lacking the necessary transmission improvements. The Public Utility Commission evaluated ERCOT’s findings and selected for further study six major CREZ areas in August 2007. The CREZs are located in the Panhandle; the McCamey area, south of Odessa; and near Sweetwater and Abilene.
