my parents are engineers and growing up they talked about renewable energy and I found it extremely interesting, Jones said. I entered in a wind energy program at (Texas) Tech and I just fell in love with it. brought students face to face with current wind energy technicians to network, to learn in a hands on setting, and to try out new tools and technology.
it every year. the main reason we did this is because a lot of these techs cannot travel to the big Giuseppe Zanotti Silver Pumps
Keith Plantier of TSTC said technicians are in high demand, not only in the wind industry, but all energy industries, but just not enough students to put in those Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals Flat job openings. said enrollment in the energy industry field has dropped a bit but TSTC is working recruit more students.
SWEETWATER It was evident in the way Caitlin Jones spoke about renewable energy that the 19 year old Austin woman is determined to give the industry a boost soon after she graduates from college.
In the afternoon, crews from the Sweetwater Fire Department performed an aerial rescue demonstration with a helicopter.
Rep. Mike Conaway, R Midland, whose district includes Sweetwater, has said he favors a planned gradual phaseout of the credit.

Bush made all these flourish, and now our lawmakers somehow decided this is evil, Wortham said. have been factories that lost people because our members of Congress and our senators voted no. You expect the guys you elected to be on your side and they not and that the biggest challenge. Randy Neugebauer, R Lubbock, whose district includes Abilene, has not firmly said that he is against extending the tax credit and has only voted against permanent extensions.

Republican Senator elect Ted Cruz said in a statement to the Reporter News, am not a supporter of government subsidies because I believe the marketplace should dictate energy sources that will have the greatest impact on our future . I have full faith that Texans will continue to lead the way as energy entrepreneurs in the century to come. if the tax credit expires Dec. 31, the industry will still have the support for 10 years. Companies are eligible to claim the credit for 10 years after project completion, meaning previously constructed wind turbines will continue to receive the credit. PTC provides an income tax credit of 2.2 cents per kilowatt hour for the production of electricity from utility scale wind turbines.
Jones acknowledges fossil fuels perhaps will be the dominant source of energy, but she is not losing hope at getting renewable energy front and center.
