Event Details

We are taking our Clean Energy Works for Texas campaign to the doorstep of the Public Utility Commission (PUC) this week.  We hope you will join us for a rally on Thursday, October 18 at noon in front of the William B. Travis building at 1701 N. Congress Avenue, Austin, TX 78701.

We are urging the PUC to create rules to enforce and expand the non-wind renewable portfolio standard (RPS). Passed into law in 2005, the non-wind RPS has languished at the PUC, thanks to pressure from certain lobby interests not to enforce the law. 7 years is too long to wait.

The PUC needs to hear that the people of Texas are ready to get to work building 21st century energy economies. With more solar potential than any other state, Texas has an opportunity to grow our economy. Our workers should be supplying solar panels, inverters and other equipment to the rest of the country and the world. Enforcing the non-wind renewable portfolio standard will send a message to investors that Texas is open for business.
