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.
