Oxford, TCU, and FPL do Wind Study Project

Texas Christian University and Oxford University are working with FPL, a leading clean energy provider with natural gas, wind, solar, hydroelectric and nuclear power plants in operation across the nation, on a wind study project.

Research areas will include the extent of wind energy as an alternative to fossil fuel energy, carbon emissions, and the effects on environment, particularly birds and bats, who might be affected by spinning turbine blades.

2008 appears to be a good year for the investigation into, and development of, wind energy, as billions of dollars have been set aside for these types of projects. In the coming year, it is estimated that wind farms will generate a little over 1 percent of the nation's supply of electricity.
