Steve, I spend a fair amount of time training in Norman OKC at our Reginal training facility. Love most things about Oklahoma, and yes like the song your state is blessed with plenty of sunshine and prevailing winds. If I lived there I would whole heartily embrace both of those energy technology's. PS, I have a Honda civic hybrid car 250 K miles, keeps on going.
I don't like that part of the state as much as eastern half, like Tulsa. Used to live there, now rural in SE OK. Not a city guy any more, but if I was, would be Tulsa. Very cosmopolitan city. Lots more hills, trees, etc. in eastern half. And less big tornadoes! Down by me, never been more than a mere F3, and only one of those ever. Was in an F4 in Tulsa once, in a car... Can't imagine an F5.
Yes, "where the wind come sweeping down the plain" was in the song for a reason! At least the western half. Less windy on my side, not suitable for wind farms.
We still have a 2006 Prius (oh how I remember the disinformation on those, new tech probably won't last long, batteries were less good for environment than a gas car, etc), I think we are only at 180k, car runs perfectly. I'm using a Chevy Volt, one of the only cars on the market that is gas AND electric. I can be gas only, electric only, or, electric then gas once it runs out. Solved the problem of chargers, I can still go cross country without any issue, but never ever use an ounce of gas when not travelling. And since I have solar for the house, no money at all (ok, a tiny part of the house electric solar system I suppose) to run it as far as "fuel". Since the solar was meant for the house, and, it's $0 10 out of 12 months, the car is effectively 0, or you could allocate the solar cost to put in over 10 years and come out with 4 cents per kWH for the car.
