Over the years, Luminant and TXU Energy have been at the forefront of environmental stewardship and innovation. Today we continue to deliver reliable and increasingly clean sources of electricity to help meet the needs of a growing population and move Texas toward an even more environmentally sound future.
Our stewardship begins with maintaining an excellent compliance record that meets or outperforms all applicable federal and state environmental laws and regulations. Luminant has decades of experience utilizing solid fuel to generate electricity in an environmentally sound manner while maintaining a strong track record of reducing emissions. We are committed to technology development, renewable energy and zero-emission nuclear generation that will improve the quality of the environment for our Texas and global communities.
As one of the largest mine operators in Texas, Luminant provides strong leadership in the stewardship of our land resources. For four decades, Luminant has set the national standard in mining reclamation, restoring the land for use as forests, pastures, wildlife habitat and cropland to quickly return mined land to productivity and achieve all regulatory reclamation obligations. To date, Luminant has reclaimed nearly 69,300 acres. Luminant’s reclamation activities have received nearly 90 awards for reclamation excellence, including an unprecedented five Director’s Awards, the highest honor from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Surface Mining.
TXU Energy’s innovative energy efficiency and demand side management programs help customers save energy, save money, and do good things for the environment. The company’s innovation in this area has been demonstrated by the launch of online energy management tools like the TXU Energy MyEnergy DashboardSM solution and the internet-enabled Brighten® iThermostat device, among others.
