Whitepaper: Local Government Energy Reporting Requirements in Texas

As the largest energy consumer in the United States, Texas’ demand for power is growing faster than any other state and continues to rise as the population grows. In fact, Texas’ demand for power continues to grow faster than any other state in the U.S. To mitigate the potential emissions impacts and demand on the grid, Texas has passed legislation targeting local governments to reduce their energy consumption. However, even with legislation in place, many local governments are not meeting their reporting obligations. This whitepaper produced by NCTCOG outlines energy efficiency measures and requirements that institutes of higher education, state agencies and political subdivisions in non-attainment or near non-attainment counties are subject to complying with.
