CNA Analysis & Solutions: The Impacts of EPA's Clean Power Plan on Electricity Generation and Water Use in Texas; Additional Analysis 

By Paul Faeth, CNA (March 2015). 

TCEC helped bring attention to a new report prepared by a team at CNA Analysis & Solutions examining the potential for water savings in Texas under various scenarios of carbon emission reductions.

Putting the potential water savings  in perspective, under some carbon reduction scenarios the water that Texas might save could fill the Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium 62 times. Moreover, nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions – a principal cause of poor air quality in Texas – could drop significantly, by 34%, along with carbon reductions.
