DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reported this week in USA Today and other media is a story headlined “Wind Energy Gives American Farmers a New Crop to Sell in Tough Times.” The “crop” is wind energy.
“As founder of Tri Global Energy, I know that all of us at Tri Global and the wind industry understand the accuracy of that headline. As a West Texas native and owner of a ranch passed on to me by my parents, I know how hard it is to make a living and keep land in the family,” said John Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Tri Global Energy. “So, when wind turbines began to be erected in West Texas, many were curious about what it meant for us. As I learned more, I saw tremendous potential – and ultimately created Tri Global Energy.
“I know that our wind farms are a lifeline for dozens of farmers, ranchers and communities,” Billingsley continued. “With our roots in the Texas Panhandle, Tri Global Energy also understands the spirit of farmers and ranchers whose land is fundamental to the success of a wind project. It’s not just clean, renewable energy that improves the environment. It’s jobs, it’s tax revenues – and it helps sustain an important way of life.”
