Resident Wants More Solar Power

A Fredericksburg man wants the county to use more renewable energy sources. John Rodriguez says solar power costs have gone down over the past few years and asked the county to consider asking its utility suppliers to switch to solar and wind energy. There’s a new solar plant being proposed near New Braunfels, and Kerrville is among the towns expressing an interest in buying some. The Standard reports Fredericksburg’s suppliers still get nearly half their power from coal-fired power sources. No final decisions yet.
