ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Renew Texas plan developed by a Texas coalition of elected officials, business leaders and community groups. The plans calls for the state of Texas to adopt policies that will boost the manufacturing and installation of clean energy products. The plan aims to install four gigawatts of solar power by 2020. The plan also wants more stringent energy efficiency standards for new homes and certain appliances. The coalition hopes that the state government would offer low-cost loans to finance the programs.
