Solar power represents a win-win-win opportunity for Texas. With an abundant supply of sunshine across the state, harnessing solar electricity offers high-value electric generation, rapid deployment, supply diversity and energy security through self-sufficiency, statewide and regional economic development, jobs, unprecedented affordability, very low water use, zero fuel costs, and zero emissions. With plans announced to retire coal and gas thermal generators, and the population continuing to grow, Texas is primed for more investment in solar.
The Texas Solar Power Association (TSPA) is a statewide industry trade association that promotes the development of solar electric generation in Texas. TSPA Executive Director Charlie Hemmeline will provide an update on the trends and developments for solar power in the national and Texas markets covering both utility-scale and rooftop activity.
