This EA summary addresses the proposed construction of either a single 20 kW or two 10 kW wind turbines at the Laredo Job Corps Center.

The wind turbine will be installed on a self supporting tower approximately 120′ above the ground. The wind turbines will produce clean energy for the Laredo Job Corps center, demonstrate renewable energy capabilities to Job Corps Students and help the program meet Federal requirements in Executive Order 13423 for renewable energy production.

This project is not expected to have a negative impact on population demographics, the surrounding area, environmental quality, or natural systems and heritage.

Based on the information gathered during the preparation of the EA, the construction of the Laredo Job Corps Small Wind Turbine located at 1701 Island Street, Laredo, Texas will not create any significant adverse impacts on the environment.
