Does T. Boone Pickens have a nuclear ace in the hole?

CleanTechnica thinks so, detailing how Pickens’ planned mega-wind farm and Ogallala water rights could be used, at least in part, to power nuclear plants in Texas Panhandle. Thus he would have steady nuclear power and intermittent wind power traveling on his new transmission corridor from the Texas Panhandle to urban areas.

Texas has their own self-contained electrical power and grid. They don’t need power from anyplace else. Nor, I’m guessing, would there be much protest were multiple nukes to be built in the Panhandle.
