The Yellow Cat Wind Project

A Thrust for Navarro County's Economy


The proposed Yellow Cat Wind Project is located in Navarro County, Texas, about 45 miles south of Dallas. The project will utilize central Texas’ abundant supply of wind energy to generate local power, while also bringing steady cashflow to the Navarro County community. By working together with farmers and ranchers, the project preserves the area’s long-standing traditions through hard work and partnership.

The project will bring up to 300 megawatts of new wind energy to the Texas electrical grid. This represents a major investment in both the electric grid and the community. Yellow Cat will create millions of dollars in new revenue and countless short-term and long-term economic opportunities.

The project is managed by Steelhead Americas, the North American development arm of Vestas, the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturer and leading wind project service provider. Across the country and the State of Texas, Steelhead works collaboratively with landowners, communities, and partners to deliver responsible and beneficial wind projects.

Committed to Serving Communities 

Healthy Economies 

The project is in a portion of Navarro County that is primarily used for farming and ranching. The project will contribute to the economic stability and future of farming and ranching families by providing a reliable stream of alternative income.  

Responsible Land Use

The project prioritizes community safety and wellbeing. By incorporating responsible siting techniques and best management practices, the Frost-area community will be adequately safeguarded during construction and operations. Wind turbines and their access roads occupy a modest percentage of the leased land, allowing farmers to continue growing crops such as corn and cotton, or continue raising livestock.

Community Investment

As part of Steelhead and Vestas’ commitment to local communities, the company works with local leaders and community groups to find ways that the project can support programs and areas in need. Vestas’ Service Site Community Fund is one of many ways the company seeks to give back to the communities where it works. 

Reliability & Safety 

The Yellow Cat Wind Project is a substantial investment in the Texas electrical grid and helps support the resiliency of the power supply for consumers across the State. Safety is at the core of Vestas’ mission and is a centerpiece of each step of the development process.

Environmental Protection

When sited responsibly, wind farms have among the fewest environmental impacts of energy facilities. The area was selected in part, because it avoids sensitive wildlife areas, migration corridors, and breeding grounds. 


Wind farms can provide reliable energy to households and businesses for 30 years or more. Lease documents, governmental agreements, and company commitments provide a guarantee that at the end of the life of project, the site will be returned to its original condition and the community will not be left paying for its removal.
