Texas to Host Renewables Conference (USA)


Renewable Energy industry leaders will gather for Texas Renewables 2011 Conference in Corpus Christi at American Bank Center November 6 – 9th where growing investment in South Texas and the Coastal Bend region is gaining recognition for wind energy and renewable energy development.

It is one of the few places in the country where the wind is strong in the daytime with access to the grid for getting electricity it to market. “Peak generation coinciding with peak hour consumption and a robust existing transmission grid drive South Texas wind power,” said Mannti Cummins, American Shoreline Inc.
