As reported by UtilityDive.com, the state of Texas - traditionally known for its fossil fuel industry - is diversifying its energy production with green hydrogen, blue ammonia and solar builds for 2023.
In fact, Texas led the country in renewable energy projects in 2021, according to a report from the American Clean Power Association trade group.
Its 7,325 MW of new wind, solar and energy storage projects brought online last year far surpasses the 2,697 MW in the next most active state, California.
Texas is also the leader when ranked by how much wind, solar and storage states have under construction or in advanced development.
According to the story, the major projects upcoming for 2023 include a $6 billion green hydrogen fuel plant in Bay City, a $4 billion green hydrogen plant in Wilbarger County, a $1 billion blue hydrogen plant in Beaumont, and the Cutlass Solar Two solar facility in Fort Bend County.
All totalled the projects amount to over $10B in planned projects.
Several construction and craft positions will no doubt be created through the various construction phases of these projects such as laborers, welders, equipment operators, electrcians and beyond.
