Where Does the Paris Electricity Come From?
Electric companies in Paris, TX get power from the state’s independent electricity grid which is managed by the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). ERCOT is the entity responsible for overseeing the largest independent electric grid in the country. Texas generates its own electricity and distributes that power through its own autonomous electric grid which is separate from the other two major North American grids.
Texas uses many different sources of generation to meet its electricity needs. Power plants that burn fossil fuels (coal or natural gas) generate most of the electricity used in Texas. While, coal was once the primary source of power, natural gas and wind power have largely overtaken it as the lynchpins of the grid.
Unexpectedly, Texas has emerged as a leader in renewable energy. The wind energy output of Texas far greater than that of any other state and most countries of the world. Texas has invested billions of dollars to build high capacity power line to transmit wind generated electricity from west Texas, where most of it is generated, across the state to Paris and other cities to meet demand for power.
Texas gets very little of its power from solar electricity. But solar energy in Texas is expected to take off in the coming years. This is because of cost reductions and efficiency improvements in solar technology.
The trend in Texas is toward more growth in renewable energy and a continued decline in coal as a source of electricity for Texas.
