A refinery stands next to Charles H. Milby Park in Houston, Texas, U.S., on Sunday, March 8, 2020. Houston has been purposefully going green for more than a decade. The municipal government gets 92% of all the power it uses in the buildings it owns from wind and solar and has been on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's list of the largest renewable power users since 2016.
