Possible Wind Power Line Solution at WT

Posted: Updated:

CANYON, TEXAS - Most of us think of fabric as something that you wear - but a research team at WTAMU has a whole different idea - and it's being called a scientific breakthrough.

They want to store energy from wind turbines in a special nano material. That can then be shipped on trucks and trains to where they want to use it. This would eliminate the need for costly power lines that have faced so much opposition in the Panhandle region.

Right now this technology is still in the testing phase. It could be several years before it is ready to be used in this role.
