Texas has a wide variety of energy sources. Once dominated by natural gas and coal,[1] the power mix has been changing rapidly. Wind generation replaced coal in the number two position in 2017.[2] ERCOT has also approved the planned connection of much new generation capacity to the Texas electric grid, none of it coal. The permitted new connections to the grid include 2,000 megawatts from solar sources, 8,700 megawatts from wind generation, and more than 10,000 megawatts from natural gas.[3]
