Having come from Texas (I grew up most of my life in Houston and lived from 1985 to 2002 in Austin — an awesome place) the saying “They do things bigger in Texas” rings true today. I just read a heartening article about how Texas has given the green light to add more transmission capacity to bring energy derived from wind farms in West Texas to other parts of the state. Of course there are those who oppose this — from land owners who feel that the wind turbines spoil the view to environmentalists who fear the impact the turbines will have on the migration pattern of birds. I don’t doubt that they have valid concerns but this is a great step forward in order to generate clean renewable energy and to get more investment in wind power.
