Wind turbine based power generation and storage system network and method wherein potential energy is stored as compressed air. A high-pressure pneumatic pipeline system is employed to link remote wind farms. The pipelines are located on the desert floor and adjacent railroad beds. The compressed air energy is converted into electrical energy through a turboexpander. Decompression of the expanding compressed air is used to cool equipment, condition air, desalination or provide refrigeration. A utility power grid can be incorporated and supplemented by the wind farm network. Electrical power is used for generation of compressed air during low electrical demand times.
