You have to love the irony. Texas, the state synonymous with Big Oil, now has more utility-scale solar than any other US state.
California was the long time leader, but Texas has seen a surge in solar in the last few years, and it’s been driven by economics, not policy. The cost of building and operating solar farms has plummeted
Texas was already the leader in wind. Low carbon sources now generate more than 40% of the electricity in the state.
Storage is coming too. A boom in batteries means Texas is expected to have more than 10 GW installed by the end of this year.
The oilandgas folks must be so unhappy about this 😂
