Solar Power Booms in Texas

Katherine Blunt of The Wall Street Journal writes that Texas is seeing a solar power boom.

The C3 Take
  • Invenergy is building the largest solar field in the country, costing around $1.6 billion.
  • Solar energy will soon take over wind energy in Texas as demand and investments continue.
  • A diverse energy portfolio will still be needed to power the state as renewable’s baseload capacity is typically natural gas.

“It is part of a growing number of solar projects in sunny, land-rich Texas, where experts long predicted solar farms would bloom. Solar-farm development in Texas is expected to accelerate in the coming years as generation costs fall and power demand grows. That growth puts it on track to claim a much larger share of a power market dominated by wind farms and natural-gas power plants.”
