The renewable energy regulations of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requires regional and interregional planning and cost allocation for transmission build-out. Texas generates 12,214 megawatts of wind energy as of January 1, 2013. Implementation of a renewable portfolio standard is also discussed.
