Here are the facts:

  • Big corporations operating in Texas have received more than $18 BILLION in subsidies since 2006—from YOU.
  • Local Chapter 312 and 313 tax abatement deals cost property tax payers about $1 billion a year; about $270 million of that goes to renewable generators.
  • Wind and solar farms create few jobs yet receive millions of dollars of subsidies and tax breaks anyway.
  • The Texas Public Utility Commission just this week decided to increase Texans’ electricity bills by as much as $1 billion a year to increase generator profits to make up for the harmful effects of renewable energy.
