Find out how much you can save by going solar in Texas.
As the Texas economy continues to grow, electricity consumption has correspondingly increased. Environmental regulations and various market pressures have forced a significant amount of generation to exit the market in recent years while older generation sources continue to be retired. Thus, new solar generation capacity is required to meet the Texas market’s demand. With appropriate state policy that removes, or at least does not create, market barriers and recognizes solar’s benefits, the Texas solar market should see significant growth in the coming years.
