Making Connections in Texas

Here Enterprises Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRTE) announced yesterday that they have joined the Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association (TREIA) to further support the development of clean wind energy in Texas.

Here Enterprises is developing a wind farm on its wholly owned site in Texas. Here Enterprises is in good company. Texas is the nation’s leading state of wind power generation with over 2,000 wind turbines in West Texas alone. The state aims to hit 5,000 new megawatts of power from renewable resources by 2015.

Texas is currently moving forward on erecting $5 billion worth of transmission wires to connect the states wind turbines to the cities that need the power. Once the transmission lines are in place, the wind energy capacity will be nearly doubled.
