Texas scored number one in renewable projects, acing out California, according to Ernst & Young\u2019s U.S. Renewable Energy Attractiveness Indices report. \u201cTexas is above California as the number one market,\u201d said Matt Williams, Ernst & Young renewables executive, in presenting the report December 13. Texas outpaced California on the basis of its development of wind energy and transmission infrastructure, the report said. California continues to lead Texas when it comes to solar, biomass, and geothermal energy. However, Williams pointed out that the switch is not surprising given the vast wind resources and high demand for power in Texas. California has already developed many of its wind resource areas and does not use as much electricity as Texas, he added. In 2006, Texas used 343 million MWhs of power compared to California, which used 263 million MWhs, according to the Energy Information Administration. When it comes to wind energy, Williams said that much of the market in California involves repowering existing wind projects with more efficient turbines. In the Ernst & Young report, Texas and California were followed by third-ranked New Mexico and then Oregon and Iowa.
