Possible and profitable. Get smart on wind.

As to the cost of the transmission lines, upgrading the grid is NECESSARY if we want reliable power. The standard model of power distribution has to get modular and more flexible to power the future. It isn't JUST because of wind power.

They should study this thread..


It is the answer they need to continue to develop cheap wind power, something they have plenty of.

Just look at how much hot air comes from there.. ;-)

That reminds me, you tend to be proud of your flawed posts. It must be due to the flaws in your personality.

You mean T. Boone Pickens and he didn't sell them anything. He didn't develop ANY of the Texan Wind Farms. But he did get a lot of publicity among the clueless and disturbed. Like you.

Most of the wind farms are by power companies already located in Texas.

HE claims to have lost his shirt promoting wind. So please notice I said SOLD, not developed.

Of course, he is now making a killing with his natural gas for wind back-up ;)
