China thinks about wind
The Chinese government reportedly is pouring 8 billion yuan (a shade under $1 billion) into a one-gigawatt wind farm in the northwest province of Gansu.
This is a pretty good-sized plant about twenty times the size of the wind farm near Woodward that OG&E uses but it won't make much of a dent in Chinese energy needs. Still, it's a start.Posted at 9:08 AM to Family Joules
