  • Wind Resource
    The expansion of new Land Ports of Entry facilities was taxing the existing utility grid infrastructure of the Greater Southwest Region. Applied Research evaluated individual remote locations to find the most cost-effective and efficient energy source. The wind resource assessments show that commercial scaled wind turbines are economically feasible at two Texas land ports of entry.
    • "Wind Resource Fact Sheet" (GSA)
      This fact sheet discusses in more detail the situation and potential benefits of a wind turbine installation.
