Watt Watchers of Texas: Texas is Too Good To Waste™

Renewable Generation in Texas

Grade Level:

From Houston's energy corridor to Dallas, Texas is known as a big energy state. Many know the state ranks highly in oil and gas production (and consumption) but everyone should know about Texas's strong renewable sector.

For example, Texas leads the country in wind-powered electricity generation.¹ However, solar, conventional hydro, municipal solid waste, wood waste, and biomass all contribute to the Texas's energy landscape.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration collects data and analysis regarding national and state energy statistics. You can find all of this publicly on their website.
