Texas Finally Did Something Right




Texas approved a $4.9 billion plan to build energy transmission lines in order to transport the wind-generated electricity in the West Texas wind farms. It's said to be the biggest investment in renewable energy in the nation's history. While Texas is already the national leader in wind energy, this investment will insure there is the proper infrastructure to transport the energy collected from the turbines.

It seems that finally Texas is taking a step in the right direction, and for once we are an innovative example for the nation. Hopefully this will just be one step of many that the Lone Star State takes toward a more environmentally friendly way of life. And hey, if Texas can do it, a state which is infamous for it's oil production and consumption, anyone can. There is hope for the Nation yet.

Oh, I'm sure there is, but that's the beauty of capitolism. When people make money on things that are good, the money doesn' take away from that good. So, yay Texas.

I'm not too bothered if a friend of a friend is making money from this, it's good progression that there's normally precious little of, so it's all good.

I am so relieved they are building more wind mills in Texas. I just switched over to Gexa Green and this news should bring down the price of futures and my electric bill.
