Post Buy a suite at Boone Pickens Stadium, get a free wind turbine

Friday July 10, 2009

When he’s not bankrolling the Oklahoma State football program, T. Boone Pickens is of course at the forefront of the energy industry. In business just as in sports you win some and lose some, and a change in plans has Pickens with a bit of an inventory problem on his hands.

Plans for the world’s largest wind farm in the Texas Panhandle have been scrapped, energy baron T. Boone Pickens said Tuesday, and he’s looking for a home for 687 giant wind turbines.

Pickens has already ordered the turbines, which can stand 400 feet tall — taller than most 30-story buildings.

“When I start receiving those turbines, I’ve got to … like I said, my garage won’t hold them,” the legendary Texas oilman said. “They’ve got to go someplace.”

That’s correct…Pickens’ garage will only hold 356 of the 30-story turbines. He could always put up a few around campus to clear the smoke.
