Texas Green Energy Efforts

texas green energy

Every year, Texas expands its sustainability measures while still providing abundant energy from various resources, largely thanks to Texas’ green energy efforts!

The cultivation and use of harmful energy sources like fossil fuels continually do detriment to the Earth. Fossil fuels are bad for the environment due to their contribution to air pollution, water pollution, and increased global temperatures. As an added challenge, fossil fuels, as a resource, are finite. 

However, alternative energy solutions are plentiful, and the future of Texas green energy looks encouraging. Here are a few alternative energy solutions that are gaining popularity in the Lone Star state.

Texas Green Energy – Wind 

What exactly is the purpose of those large wind turbines dotting fields all over the state? Well, those create wind power! According to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, about 15.7% of the state’s energy comes from wind power. Wind spins the large turbine blades, which power a generator that creates usable electricity. Even something as pleasant as a cool Texas breeze can provide a sustainable energy.

Texas Green Energy – Water 

Water power, also known as hydropower, is created from the movement of water through turbines that spur a generator, much like wind power. Although it only creates about 1% of Texas’ energy, it is one of the country’s most common renewable energy sources. 

You’ll see more hydroelectric power plants in areas with large-scale rivers and lakes. Hydropower is used with elevation differences, such as dams or manufactured structures. Due to its inexpensive cost and reliability, water power is another great alternative energy option.

Texas Green Energy – Solar

Last but certainly not least is solar power! Solar companies in Texas are leading the charge in creating a greener future for our planet. Solar energy works by extracting energy from the sun through its UV rays. 

Solar panels on solar farms or residential homes capture the UV rays and convert the energy into DC electrical current with photovoltaic cells. The DC electricity is converted to house-friendly AC electricity for daily use. 

Solar is one of the most efficient, powerful, and abundant sources of energy that we know of, and it’s inexpensive and accessible. Another benefit to solar energy is that it can lower your monthly electricity bill.

Creating The Foundation

As the foundational step in our partnership, the construction of concrete piers for the solar panel structure marks a pivotal milestone in our solar energy initiative. These concrete piers serve as the bedrock of support for the entire solar infrastructure, providing stability and durability essential for the efficient functioning of the solar array.

Precision And Accuracy Are Paramount

Our engineering team meticulously plans and designs the layout of the piers, ensuring they are strategically positioned to uphold the solar panel array's weight and withstand environmental factors such as wind and inclement weather. We adhere to industry standards and best practices to create a robust foundation that guarantees the longevity and resilience of the solar installation.

A Solid Foundation

Environmental considerations are taken into account throughout the construction process, ensuring minimal disruption to the surrounding ecosystem. Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond energy production to encompass responsible construction practices.

By establishing these concrete piers foundations, we are ready to start Phase 2, erecting the metal support bars. Enabling the subsequent installation of solar panels will power the plastic manufacturer's operations while significantly reducing their carbon footprint.
