Beyond Coal Texas

Hello Y'all

Welcome to our Beyond Coal Texas Home Page! 


Our Top Five Goals in The Lone Star:

1. To stop construction of any new coal plants in the state

2. To gradually and rapidly phase out the use of the existing coal fleet

3. To promote the development of wind, solar, and geothermal jobs and resources across Texas

4. To increase energy efficency programs in the state

5. To prevent Texas ports from expanding coal exports to places like China and India.


The new mantra is to "Lighten the Load, Shave the Peak, Clean Energy Works" – it costs less and cleans up our existing air pollution problems. Lets work to get Texas on the right path even though it is its own electrical island! 

 As coal retires off the system, Texans are developing “Made in Texas” resources that will emit less pollution and use less water while at the same time supporting our local economies and protecting public heath.
