Texan Wind Farm

Texan Wind Farm
T Boone Pickens, an oil magnate and founder of Texan oil company, Mesa Petroleum, has launched a project to build 500 wind turbines at a cost of $2m each. His aim is to build the world's biggest wind farm.
The plan is expected to take four years. 2,700 turbines will be constructed on 200,000 acres of the Texan countryside.
The finished wind farm will be five times the size of the world's current largest wind farm, and will supply 4,000 megawatts of electricity. That's enough to power about one million homes.
The scheme is expected to cost around $10bn
Texas has been identified as the perfect location for the scheme with its wide-open spaces, low population and steady south-westerly winds
