Another company is hoping to turn West Texas a little more "green" in terms of energy.

Element Power, a solar energy company, presented a proposal to Presidio County Commissioners on Tuesday.

The company is hoping to construct a solar panel site that would provide the county with as many as sixty megawatts of electricity.

Element Power has asked for a tax abatement.
