Texas may well be the world's biggest hot spot for wind. Texas like big, and big wind keeps roaring in the Lone Star state like a mighty storm.
Texas will add 645 megawatts of wind just between August and the end of 2013. But that is just a part of the unending, Texas wind rush. By 2016, another 6,000 megawatts will be built!
Building 6,000 megawatts of wind is the equivalent of 2 big new nuclear plants and doing it in 3 years. Stunning.
When it comes to wind, Texas is all cattle and no hat. Texas will soon have about 17,000 megawatts of wind power operating. It's become an example of what wind can do for America and the world. I will take my hat off to Texas for its wind leadership.
