Texas companies Oncor Electric and Falcon Steel announced a plan Monday to build 3,800 electric transmission towers out of recycled steel, creating a backbone for the new grid needed to carry wind power from rural West Texas eastward to the urban centers.

The towers, to be made of re-fabricated scrap steel supplied by Nucor Corp. of Charlotte, will stand 120-130 feet tall and support more than 800 miles of power lines.

U.S. Rep. Kay Granger of Fort Worth helped make the announcement, praising the companies for their ambitions and green-minded creativity.
