Texas getting the largest wind farms in the US

Texas is set to get three gigantic new wind farms courtesy of Baryonyx, delivering thousands of megawatts of clean, renewable energy for the state. One will be placed in over 8,000 acres of land in the Texas panhandle, while the other two will be off the eastern coast of the state in the Gulf of Mexico.

Each offshore farm will produce a minimum of 750 megawatts of power using turbines that produce up to 5 megawatts each.
The energy will be sent to the Texas General Land office, who will sell the juice to schools, prisons and cities. The state is looking to make at least $338 million from the deal, which is a pretty sweet amount of money for something that's so good for the environment.
