Renew Texas wants to harness Texas' natural power

They want to boost the economy, and clean up the environment at the same time. Renew Texas has been endorsed by more than 100 Texas leaders and organizations.

They say that through wind power, and solar power, Texas can power the nation and create thousands of high-paying manufacturing jobs. Even better, they say it will make Texas the energy capital of the world.

"Everybody wants to stop the dependance on foreign oil. The technology is available. We need to get the consumers involved and get them a little break on the price and it would be more mainstream," said John Curry.

Renew Texas is asking the state legislature to adopt clean energy policies and suggests the federal government could even help pay for it.
