WINKLER COUNTY - The wind's powering up the Winkler County Sheriff's Office.

The Sheriff tells NewsWest 9, the new wind turbine is working and is providing power to his office.

The $148,000 project is expected to provide 35% of their electricity.

County officials won't know how much they're saving until next year, but signs of relief should come by August.

If it's successful, the county will look at putting wind turbines near other county offices.
