What if the harbinger of our greener future was a small power plant set in the middle of nowhere in West Texas? Longtime alternative energy executive Andy Bowman's book makes exactly this case, outlining what he suggests is a more sustainable future for American capitalism. Newly revised and updated for 2023, The West Texas Power Plant that Saved the World, offers the Barilla solar plant in Pecos County as a test case for the state of renewable energy in the twenty-first century United States. Bowman explains the climate science that necessitated this shift and makes business-based arguments for what the future should look like. The result is a book that tells a personal story of West Texan innovation, gumption and vision, while outlining how our society needs to work in partnership with all stakeholders to confront climate change.
