It's been a rough year for Austin's utility: It can't seem to get rid of the city's share of the South Texas Project nuclear plant; it has endured constant haranguing for the Holly Power Plant; the Legislature is threatening to open the market to independent power producers; and Mayor Bruce Todd keeps trying to sell them off. Despite all this, the EUD has continued to search for a solution to Holly, offers a fantastic rebate program to businesses that build using energy-efficient materials, and continually mails out educational materials to teach Austinites the secrets of responsible energy use.
