Energy And Environmental Newsletter – April 2019

Trucks drive by a wind turbine that is part of Babcock & Brown Infrastructure Group's Gulf Wind Project on Kenedy Ranch south of Kingsville, Texas, U.S., on Monday, Feb. 23, 2009. The $787 billion stimulus legislation signed by President Barack Obama includes at least $14 billion in tax breaks for wind and solar electricity and establishes a grant program to help finance projects. When completed this wind farm will have 118 turbines with a total output of 283 megawatts. Credit: 2009 Black Star (Newscom TagID: bsphotos025766.jpg) [Photo via Newscom]
