You know what they say, “Everything is bigger in Texas!” That truth rings clear in a recent study which shows that solar power capacity is expected to double in the Lone Star State this year. In fact, Texas remains one of the front-runners in the race to renewable energy. Known for its vibrant music scene, famous pecan pie, and signature cowboy hats, the state has a large amount of activity, events, and companies that need reliable sources of power. Solar energy is no longer being looked over, and more families are choosing renewable energy to power their lives.
