Zac Trahan, Dallas, TX “We’re concerned about provisions previous PUC Sunset bills that would give renewable energy credits to companies that burn recyclable materials and garbage. That would be a very negative thing to call that type of operation a ‘green’ energy… There was also a proposal to allow a coal-burning industry to allow any amount of wood chips or ‘biomass’ and call that a source of renewable energy in order to attach the resource to renewable energy credits… And regarding the disclosure bill, 1 in every 5 chemicals used by the gas industry is declared a ‘trade secret’. In fact, 19,000 different instances of trade secret exemptions have been given to gas companies in Texas since the passage of the bill. I hope you consider strengthening the disclosure bill to address this issue.”
