Texas is America’s largest producer of oil and natural gas. It is also the largest producer of wind power. CEA Texas works to reinvigorate Texan pride in energy production.

CEA Texas works to advocate for increased energy production in the Lone Star State. We help push back against groups who want to diminish Texas energy production and erect roadblocks to responsible state oversight of the energy industry. CEA works to promote and hold Texas up to the rest of the nation as an example of how to balance responsible energy production and environmental and consumer protection.

Texas is home to CEA and our headquarters are located in Houston. CEA’s Energy Day Festival is also located in Houston with new states coming soon.
