Texas lawmakers propose bills moving away from renewable energy in attempt to shore up power grid
March 9, 2023
Some Texas senators unveiled plans Thursday to shift the focus away from wind and solar and toward resources like natural gas.
It was part of nine bills Texas lawmakers announced aimed at shoring up the state’s power grid.
Authors and supporters of the legislation said it’s geared at getting more power in the state that can quickly turn on and off, on demand.
But some have concerns the shift in strategy could up costs for consumers.
