CONSERVATION IS THE KEY

|

Very interesting op-ed from the environmental side in the Star-Telegram this morning on the TXU question. The takeaway:

According to the State Energy Conservation Office, the energy from sunshine falling on a single acre of land in West Texas is capable of producing the energy equivalent of 800 barrels of oil each year. If solar panels were distributed on roofs and over parking lots throughout 5 percent of our urban areas, they would produce more than half of Texas’ current electrical consumption.
