Renew Texas '24 Requirements

Organizations that choose to take the pledge must agree to the following:

To use electricity that is generated from 100% renewable resources in all their operations. This can be done by:

  • Generating electricity on-site using renewable resources (solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal);
  • Participating in a renewable energy aggregation with other organizations;
  • Purchasing renewable electricity from a retail electric provider;
  • Purchasing renewable energy credits (RECS); alternatively, use verifiable carbon sequestration, capture, and/or offsets to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions from electricity consumption;
  • Some combination of the options above.

Promote the benefits of the use of 100% renewable energy to their students and employees through awareness campaigns during Earth month (April).

How to Participate

  1. Print out the pledge form.
  2. Have your president/CEO/chancellor sign the form. We recommend conducting a brief signing ceremony and photo shoot with students and college/university personnel, so that you can later:
    • Distribute the information to students/employees/donors via your portal or newsletters. (Send us the link so we can include the story on this website also.)
    • Share the information with your local chambers of commerce.
  3. Upload a copy of the signed pledge.
