Wind Blade Spins through Texas on Renewable Energy Tour

A 120-foot long, 14,000-pound wind blade from one of Texas’ wind farm turbines is making its way across Texas in a renewable energy tour designed to educate children about the benefits of using renewable energy. The “Biggest Fan” is taller than the Statue of Liberty and taller than the length of the U.S. Capitol Building.

TXU Renew will display the wind blade to more than a thousand students at elementary schools and Boys and Girls Clubs in the state. In addition to education of children and the public at large, the tour reinforces TXU Renew’s commitment to the environment through renewable energy. TXU Corp. launched a new company — TXU Renew — in April 2006, with its core mission to double TXU’s renewable energy portfolio by 2011. The “Texas’ Biggest Fan” Wind Blade Tour will supplement educational materials previously made available to the schools. At each school, students will have a hands-on opportunity to experiment with wind energy, and environmental experts will highlight the importance of all forms of renewable energy. “TXU Renew is committed to educating upcoming generations on the impact and importance of utilizing renewable energy sources,” said Mike McCall, Chairman and CEO of TXU Wholesale. “The TXU family of companies has been researching and supporting the development of wind and other renewable energy resources for more than 25 years.” TXU Energy has just launched its first major renewable sourced service plans, called The TXU Energy EarthWise plans, which offer customers three competitively priced options to help benefit the Texas environment. These new service plans are available to all eligible new and existing TXU Energy residential customers. Call 1-800-242-9113 or visit the links below.
