How much land is taken up by wind farms in Texas?



  1. 0 Votes

    Texas farmers are given the option to lease their land out to wind farms during slow seasons. This combined with the sheer amount of available land in Texas makes it the de facto state for wind power infrastructure in the United States.

    At present, the largest wind farm in the world is being constructed in Texas, a project which involves devoting 47000 acres of land to wind turbines.

    Other, smaller wind farms add up to give Texas a total of between 50 and 60 thousand acres of land devoted to wind power at any given point.
