The Lone Star
State has more renewable energy potential than any other state. Wind power
alone could generate up to 136,000 megawatts of electricity, more than
twice the state's total generating capacity.
Much of the state's wind and solar power potential lies in the rural
regions of west and south Texas, where jobs and economic development are
sorely needed. By shifting to renewable energy, Texas can recapture some
of the money now being used to import energy from other states and
countries. A move toward renewables would also spur the economy, create
jobs and increase our tax base.
