The article discusses the competitive renewable energy zones (CREZ) project, which will add transmission lines to move wind power across Texas. The project is scheduled for completion in 2013, but is reportedly overbudget as a result of an underestimation of the number of miles of line needed to avoid towns and environmentally-sensitive areas. An overview of planned wind-power projects following the completion of the transmission lines is presented.
