Google buys Texas wind farm
The Spinning Spur
70 turbines, 160 megawatts output on a good day. Nice, but not huge. It helps that Texas is the home of blowhards and hot air. :-) (The business-friendly state government doesn’t hurt.)
Wind-energy subsidies amount to (I would say “just”) 2.2 cents per kwh, and that, for only the first 10 years of operation. It’s heartening that the gap between the market cost of wind energy and conventional is so little that 2.2 cents will bridge the gap.
