Dr. Dale Funderburk, Texas A&M-Commerce economics professor, and his wife took a long drive out west this summer and he noticed the proliferation of wind farms, especially in the Texas Panhandle.  More than 40 wind power projects are now operating in Texas, generating 12% of the state's electrical power and 24,000 jobs.
