Texas will have an additional 10GW capacity of solar by 2029, according to a report by Texas Advanced Energy Business Alliance (TAEBA).
The report also states that electricity generation (including wind, natural gas, solar etc.) has created $3.6billion in revenue and $16billion in total revenue.
Texas has twice the solar potential of any other US state, according to the SEIA.
Jim Hughes, CEO of First Solar, a photovoltaic solar energy provider, said: “Solar is taking off in Texas…solar has become a reliable, competitively priced component in the state’s balanced energy portfolio. We see an enormous growth opportunity for solar in Texas.”
