  • Wind Turbines for sale T.B.Pickens

    There is a massive wind farm in SW Wyoming and there is a large scale farm going up in Milford UT. Maybe they might expand the farms.

    I guess putting up transmission towers would not be a shovel ready Government job,kind of like the one's Obama was talking about.

    (Reuters) – Texas oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens has called off plans to build the world's biggest wind farm in the Texas Panhandle, the Wall Street Journal said.

    Pickens said the wind farm project was scuttled partly because of the lack of adequate transmission lines to carry the electricity from remote locations to cities, according to the paper.

    The oil tycoon had hoped to build new transmission lines but could not secure financing, the paper said.

    Pickens plans to find new homes for the turbines that he already agreed to buy, the paper said, citing a statement.

    Pickens could not immediately be reached for comment by Reuters.

    I'm on it uncle Boone, Uh , Mr. Pickens.

    New locations: Washington D.C. and Sacramento CA.

    The capitol buildings at both locations produce a constant stream of HOT AIR and would run the Wind Turbines at maximum speed 24/7.

        Well said gents. large scale distributed generation keeps the energy monoply intact for the forseeable future. i don't think the transmission lines will be running through any politicos back yards any time soon.
