Wind Power on Tap to Help Texas Meet Carbon Reduction Goals

June 12 -- You might say Texas has a running start in the race to slash carbon emissions in electricity generation, a pursuit spurred by last week's proposed Environmental Protection Agency regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gases.

Already the No. 1 wind power state, Texas is on pace to increase wind capacity by close to 70 percent in just two years.

Nothing partisan about renewing American wind power incentives

June 11 -- At a time when Congress needs to demonstrate to the American people that it can still get important things done, it has a unique opportunity to do exactly that by renewing its commitment to critical wind energy incentives. We urge the Senate to pass its package of tax incentives that includes key credits for renewable energy. In doing so, Congress can show it is still focused on priorities that matter most to the public—encouraging the creation of good-paying jobs and spurring private sector investment. >>View Article
