With Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) high voltage transmission lines scheduled for completion by the end of 2012, wind power plants should begin to pepper the region. Texas Tech University is in the ideal location, boasting the only doctorate program in Wind Science and Engineering, and the only graduate certificate program in the wind energy industry.
