Renewable Energy Texas

Over the last 100 years, Texas has always been a global leader in the gas and oil industries, but now they are poised to also lead in renewable energy production. Building upon their energy expertise, part of the state’s workforce is being trained to help Texas hold the lead in their capacity to generate wind energy and produce biodiesel. While 37 states currently have Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) laws in position, Texas also leads the way in effectiveness and success by reaching their installation of 10,000 MW renewable sources goals 15 years ahead of their 2025 target date.
