What we’re seeing is a broad shift. Little plants installations, everyday across the country eating away. Bite by bite, plant by plant, state by state. The second tweet below shows a the Southwest Power Pool – a broad groups of states under management of a single ISO – breaking 62% of electricity from wind. That’s not trivial folks.
Recent projects indicate that this trend will become more pronounced in the next few years as wind moves ahead of NG to become the No 1 source in OK. pic.twitter.com/EzbfgLVVtO
