Don’t know if this commercial is showing up on TV around the whole country or not. Here in the Southwest, we seem to get it just about every day. It feels like it should end with Pickens saying, “I’m T. Boone Pickens and I approved this message.”.
Pickens is building the largest wind turbine project in the country over in the Texas Panhandle. There are a number of interesting and serious profit-making aspects of the project. Mostly long-range and all seem to be an advancement over his decades of making money from drilling for oil.
I’ve blogged previously about the project as has Craig Rubens. A Texas land and oil baron this size is always scary; but, he’s also done a pretty good job of making money for people – in addition to himself.
His significant core plan for sorting out transportation is switching away from oil derivatives to natural gas. Something we have a lot of as a natural resource. Take a look at his project’s website – www.pickensplan.com – and see what you think?
