Our continuing series called What's Working looks at innovations that are paying off in America, from education to infrastructure and more. Labor Department figures show solar panel and wind turbine technicians are the two fastest-growing careers in the country. Texas is where you'll find the most of those wind industry jobs.

Heartwarming to see a Republican state leading the way on at least one type of renewable energy. Miss this boat on this one and you can forget about new jobs. Solar and wind will be needed to power the factories of tomorrow. Where robots backed by Ai's work 24/7/365 make the goods we all will need. Musk won't be the only guy building Giga factories, everything will be produced by these types of plants, the only questions is where will they be built. Have the energy and you will have gone 90% of the way.

I am Chinese & I support Trump.

Texas should go solar too
Texas has been a leader of wind energy for a long time now. There's nothing new about it. How come everything you guys talk about needs to come off political. You make it sound like Trump wants to make coal the leading energy in the country. If you actually look at parry is promoting nuclear energy over everything.

Mayor Dale Ross is one of the rare republicans that understands solar and wind are the future

Hey CBS, Why do you end your videos with someone in mid sentence? This happened in more than 2 videos.

Our electric bill comes out to 60.00 bucks because of Trumps tax cuts. During the Obama years 200.00 per month.

"Very Clean Coal" yes it's more costly, more dangerous, and much more difficult to produce. But hey those are just facts you keep touting that non existant clean coal Mr President.
I support Trump and I think they are beautiful. They are in every little town down here in S. Texas. I don’t care if he thinks they are ugly. So what?
wesley rodgers
Excellent ;)
Hank Terreros
Cool, but coal is cooler now.
Wendy Alexander
And just think, Trump hates wind mills! He says they're unsightly!

Rooftop solar power causing Texas at forefront of renewable energy 2 days ago   07:11

As one of the sunniest countries in the world, it's no surprise Australia is a world leader in the installation of rooftop solar.

More than six solar panels are installed across the country every minute of everyday - each day.

The industry that owns Australia's poles and wires says all that power from the sun is a problem and it could destabilise the electricity grid.
