- I don't know any details, but I'd like to find out about the funding (I guess state) for energy efficiency and R&D of new technologies.

The State Legislature passed the Texas Emissions Reduction Plan (TERP) to
provide grants and other financial incentives for improving air quality in
Texas. A public hearing on this program is scheduled in Houston on Friday,
September 21, at 8:30 am in Houston City Hall 2nd Floor, 901 Bagby. TERP
replaces rules that would have resulted in the construction shift –
restricting operation of construction equipment before noon. It includes
rebates for vehicles that meet stringent emission standards such as the
Toyata Prius and Honda Insight.
Some additional facts about TERP:
· Provides funding for cleaner on- and off-road engines.
· Provides funding for energy efficiency programs.
· Provides funding for cleaner fuels and other infrastructure programs.
· Provides funding for research and development of new technologies.
Comments may be submitted to the TERP program by fax at 512/239-6188 or
