Tulia, Texas - Tulia's place on the map is playing a big role in attracting win energy companies. The mayor says they've been in talks with several major green energy companies in the past few months.

As for why Tulia is attracting all of this interest, the mayor says the companies tell him it's all about location, location, location.

Pat George says, "We're very optimistic about the transmission lines and the wind energy that's coming to our area. We're right square in the middle of all four of the major transmission lines and the four substations that they're gonna build." 

Not only would the tax revenue increase from these new companies, but during the construction phase, hundreds of new jobs would be created... Jobs that would last for several years.
