Texans turn to turbines

894738_wind_farm.jpgLovely little photo story on the New York Times today, explaining how Texans are investing in some gigantic wind turbines.

It’s such an incredible sign of the times – one of the great oil capitals of the world moving to wind power.

Greenbang was surprised to learn Texas surpassd California as top wind-farm state in 2006, with enough wind power for 100,000 homes.

“Texas has been looking at oil and gas rigs for 100 years, and frankly, wind turbines look a little nicer,” said Jerry Patterson, the Texas land commissioner, whose responsibilities include leasing state lands for wind energy development. “We’re No. 1 in wind in the United States, and that will never change.”
