T. Boone Pickens is suspending plans to build the world’s largest wind farm as proposed under “The Pickens Plan”, and is choosing instead to build three or four smaller wind projects at an estimated cost of $ 2 billion US at potential locations in the Midwest or Canada. Several factors influenced this decision – a lack of transmission lines and a reduction in the price of natural gas, along with the current global financial situation. Previous details of the proposal are found in our archives. (Source: Globe and Mail, July 8, 2009)
