Somebody asked me ‘what does a wind generator sound like?’ and I said, ‘It sounds like money to me’. I’m a conservative Republican and… I absolutely love the environment I love renewable energy. Texas is still the wild west of wind. You can come out here as an entrepreneur or big company stake out a place on the ground get the landowners to give you a wind lease and develop a wind farm. Renewable energy was basically unknown in this part of west Texas until the late 1990s. My first client came into my office one day and he said ‘would you look at this someone has given me a wind lease they want to build actually a wind farm on my ranch’. That really launched my career in wind representing landowners it also sparked the beginning of the wind boom that we had here in Sweetwater. When I see them I’m around them it just makes you smile. It’s a huge thing to know it’s going to help us all. We’re able to still graze and utilise all the grasses below them. The cattle love them. I always jokingly say that they love them because they know that it helps buy feed to feed them. The wind business again has really helped us make a living. We can take better care of the land and improve its quality so it’s it’s really been a godsend for all west Texans especially my family. Yeah, my view has changed on renewable energy over the years. First and foremost, I’m a businessman and the original decision was just that it was a business decision. There is no regulatory or governmental risk with wind and solar business because there’s nothing to regulate everything is clean energy no pollutants go back in the air and you can’t say that for fossil fuels especially coal. In oil and gas you pay later. You tear up the environment you contaminate and then money has to be spent by the government later to clean it up. Wind or solar on the other hand you give an economic incentive early but there’s no clean-up. We all know that one day fossil fuels will run out not perhaps in my lifetime but maybe in my grandchildren’s lifetime. That’s the deal if you really want a long-term planning let’s go out 20,000 years. Are we going to have enough fossil fuels to generate electricity in Texas? I don’t think so. I know we’ll have wind and solar. So that’s really an extreme example of long-term strategic planning.
