Coal energy in Texas is predicted to become obsolete in the next few years.

According to YourBasin.com, the Energy Institute at UT Austin says wind capacity will over take coal in a few years.

Three coal power plants are going to be closed down in 2018 replacing the coal generated energy with wind energy.

Texas Renewable Energy Industries Alliance officials say wind energy is being developed all across the state but natural gas is still the key energy supply in Texas.
