Truly melts my heart every time I see our Oklahoma sunsets. 📸 @ashh.93 #thisisoklahoma .
The U.S. State of Oklahoma has high potential capacity for wind power in the western half of the state. In 2017, Oklahoma's installed wind generation capacity was almost 7,500 megawatts, supplying almost a third of the state's generated electricity.
The Pacific Orca is a purpose-built heavy-lift jack-up vessel. The self-elevating, self-propelled vessel has been built for use in the offshore wind farm market. With carrying and installation capability of up to 12 wind turbine generators (WTG), each rated at 3.6MW, she is the biggest wind farm installation vessel (WIV) in the world.

Lightning is the pure force of nature, bundled in a ray electricity, so powerful and unpredictable that it actually becomes the most dangerous thing about storm chasing. We humans love to play with electricity, we love to harvest it and use it for our advantage, but nature produces it to balance itself out, no matter what is standing in the way. I just love watching these kind of scenes and enjoy nature at its craziest! Do you love storms?
By 2030, the UK plans to source one-third of it’s electricity from offshore wind. We took a trip to to Grimsby, England, to find out more.
This is a story Australia could learn A LOT from.

On EP164, John Farrell of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance sheds light on how we came to develop and rely on our current centralized, top-down power grids today mostly driven by utility monopolies; why we need to not only shift towards renewable energy but also work towards energy democracy and the decentralization of power sources; why some utility companies may at the same time be supporting solar energy while lobbying against it; and more.
