It is not a storage problem so much as it is a transportation problem. After they build them they need to connect them to the regular electric grid. Most of the time that is expensive. Ask T. Boone Pickens who owns the largest wind farm in the country. I wouldn’t be surprised if his don’t go silent if he can’t get someone else to lay the lines for him.
The collection portion moves among and around the CREZs collecting the power generated by the windfarms that will be located within the numerous CREZs. Pickins' wind farm was or is to be located in the Roberts County CREZ.
The cross state portion are two lines, one to DFW, and the other to San Antonio Austin.
The distribution portion would be those lines that split off the main trunk lines that distribute the power to various areas around DFW and SAA.
Currently the project is in site approval with the PUC and the projected completion date is in 2013.
