We provide context for the scope and scale of the wind and solar buildout in the Lone Star State
The changes taking place on the Texas power grid are impressive. Solar remains just under 4% of the Texas generation stack, but its rapid growth is providing another leg to the stool of Texas renewable dominance
Texas monthly renewable generation is nearly 40% higher than California's, the 2nd largest state and 200% higher than the 4th largest U.S. state for renewable generation, Oregon.
To put things in context, there are only 8 U.S. states that produce more total power than what Texas generates in renewable power
Whether oil & gas production or renewable generation, Texas is a true giant in energizing the U.S. and the world.
