Celebrate Earth Day with Sam Houston EC


April 22, 2014, is Earth Day. Since 1970, Earth Day has been an annual reminder of how important it is for us all to be good stewards of our planet. The past four decades have seen amazing advancements in energy efficiency and in our ability to generate cost-effective renewable power.

At Sam Houston Electric Cooperative, we’re proud to be leading the way to a cleaner energy future, by expanding the use of hydropower and harnessing opportunities to generate electricity with biomass technology.

East Texas Electric Cooperative, Sam Houston EC’s generation and transmission cooperative, is spearheading the Woodville Renewable Power Project. The economic-boosting facility will be capable of producing 50 megawatts of clean energy by converting wood chips into renewable, carbon-neutral power.
