Pickens Drops Wind Power from the Pickens Plan

Michael Giberson

I’m quoted in a brief Marketplace radio news story on the new Pickens plan, in which Boone Pickens has dropped the wind power push and now just promotes public policies to induce switching vehicles to natural gas.

Of course Pickens dropped wind power from his private investment plans about a year ago, when his plan to build the “world’s largest wind farm” fell apart.  Took him a little longer to realize that lower natural gas prices didn’t just make his investment plans uneconomic.

More on the changes to the Pickens Plan from MSNBC. Commentary from Andrew Schenkel the Mother Nature Network.
