Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Arkansas the growth rate of new wind power manufacturing facilities has been slowed by the lack of availability of funding.  SWEPCO and Entergy both have been purchasing the output of Texas panhandle wind farms, but they do not have adequate or dedicated transmission facilities for this power and so must bid in competitive auctions for transmission on existing pathways.  It should be noted that a new pathway through Oklahoma to, say, Fayetteville or even Springfield, MO would be a major step in enabling the sale of West Texas wind power to mid west buyers, in addition to Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri.
