Make a Commitment

For nearly a century, Texas has been a leader in the world's energy industry. Whether in production, refining or technology, the world looks to Texas for products and ingenuity.


Today, the state has an opportunity to lead a new sector of the energy market. Armed with its vast expertise and resources, it can become a powerhouse in the renewable energy market. Already, windmills in west Texas and solar panels in Austin provide clean, reliable and efficient power to thousands of Texans.

By building on that base now - nearly a century after Lucas's discovery at Spindletop - and committing to renewable energy, our children and grandchildren will reap benefits well into the next century.
