T. Boone Pickens TV Commercial
What is the Pickens Plan?
The Pickens Plan attempts to reduce U.S. dependency on foreign oil. We currently use natural gas to produce 22% of our electricity. Pickens believes that by harnessing the power of wind to generate electricity, we can shift natural gas away from electricity generation to use as a transportation fuel.
He is convinced that new wind generation facilities combined with natural gas resources can replace more than one-third of our foreign oil imports in 10 years.
