Horseshoe Bay

Lawmakers are headed into conference committee to try to solve an impasse over how energy efficient Texas should become.

There are a lot of moving parts.

Dallas Rep.

Rafael Anchia, who had hoped for very progressive energy efficiency standards, may have to settle for slightly less.

But he's hopeful he'll be able to tack on incentives for solar power, which died in the House last night.

Meanwhile, Horseshoe Bay Sen.

Troy Fraser, who filed the original energy efficiency bill based on the recommendations of the Public Utility Commission, may be able to find a home for an electric co-op that he supports in conference committee.

But he may have to give a little on the efficiency standards to get it.

Fraser originally said Anchia's energy efficiency proposal sent costs soaring, and that he simply couldn't support it.

Anchia said Fraser's version installed cost caps that would actually reduce the amount of money Texas already spends on energy efficiency.

We'll see if they can meet in the middle.
