T. Boone Pickens Drops Pampa Wind Farm Plans

KSCB News - July 6, 2009 12:00 am

T. Boone Pickens is setting his wind farm sites on the Midwest, and possibly Kansas.

The Texas oilman has called off his plan to build the world’s largest wind farm in Pampa, Texas. He says instead he’ll build a few smaller wind farms in the Midwest, but he has not chosen the sites.

Pickens said he’s considering sites in Kansas, Wisconsin, Oklahoma and Texas.

He said he called off the plan for the Pampa site in part because of a lack of a transmission lines.

Pickens hosted a town hall meeting in Lawrence in April, which was simulcast in Liberal, to showcase his “Pickens Plan,” which aims to reduce the nation’s dependency on foreign oil.
