      Senator José Rodríguez Discusses Solar Trends at TREIA Policy Luncheon



      Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association welcomed Texas State Senator José Rodríguez, as the featured speaker at the TREIA's June Policy Luncheon. The luncheon, hosted at the Austin offices of Lloyd, Gosselink, Rochelle & Townsend, P.C., brought industry leaders together to hear Senator Rodríguez discuss progress in solar energy in El Paso and far West Texas, and to gain insights into the role the Legislature could play in encouraging renewable energy development throughout the state.   

      Steve Wiese & Senator Rodríguez

      TREIA President Steve Wiese presents the State Leadership Award to Senator Rodríguez at TREIA's June Policy Luncheon

      "It is an honor to be recognized by such a well-respected organization," said Senator Rodríguez. "El Paso Electric solar customers are able to take advantage of net metering thanks in large part to advocacy efforts by members of TREIA. I look forward to working with TREIA during the next legislative session to address the need for renewable energy options throughout our state."


      As a freshman legislator, Senator Rodríguez filed more than seventy pieces of legislation and passed forty-one. His hard work and tenacity on the Senate floor gained him numerous accolades, including being named "Freshman MVP" by the highly regarded online publication, Capitol Insider.   More click here>

      First Half Of 2012 A Blur Of Activity For TREIA Staff, Contractors, Volunteers


      See some of the higher profile activities and actions undertaken in the first six months of 2012. While this list is hardly exhaustive of TREIA efforts and doesn't reflect the many interactions the TREIA office has on a day to day basis, it should give one a good sense of the role the Association plays on behalf of the industry.
