Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I would not look forward to selling much Texas wind power outside of Texas. The Texas grid is almost completely isolated from the rest of the country, on purpose. The west Texas electricity will mostly be sent to Dallas, Houston, Austin, etc., even though plenty of out-of-state cities are much closer.

Amarillo to Denver: 574 km
Amarillo to Houston: 855 km

Amarillo is in the middle of the pink area on the wind map below.
