The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUC) issued an Interim Final Order yesterday that could enable construction of up to 22,806 Megawatts (MW) of new wind power in Texas. A final order, transmission plan, and budget are still pending before the Commission but are expected to be finalized in early 2008...(complete article here).

Transmission capacity from production areas to population concentrations has been a limiting factor in alternate energy production. The Texas Plan is designed to ease that restriction.
