Texas offers a huge potential opportunity in the solar industry that will bring access to secure, clean energy and jobs across the state. Texas is the nation’s largest and fastest growing consumer of electricity, making it the biggest market in the country. Texas has the potential to be a massive solar market. The sunshine that falls on Texas each month has more energy than all the oil that has ever been pumped out of Texas.
Texas receives more solar radiation than any other state and is number one in terms of its solar potential. The solar market has become more interested in the environmental and energy demand globally and is expected to increase 34% by 2035. Yes, everything is bigger in Texas! The Solar Business Festival is playing a role in supporting and promoting renewable energy in Texas to attract billions of dollars in investment and create thousands of new jobs in the solar industry.
