Go Solar Texas! PUC Renewable Energy Proposal

Posted by youngsierrans on February 10, 2010

In December 2009, the Public Utility Commission of Texas released a strawman proposal to finally implement a 2005 law requiring 500 megawatts of “non-wind” renewable energy by 2015. Environment Texas and the Go Solar Coalition (includes TX businesses and non-profits) are encouraging Governor Perry and the PUC to adopt the proposal and to include a set-aside of at least 100 megawatts of distributed generation such as rooftop solar.

Online comments on the proposal are due on February 12, 2010.
