Large-Scale Solar: The Next West Texas Energy Boom

Posted by Infra on Monday, January 18th, 2016

Texas has some of the best solar energy resources in the country. ERCOT, Texas’s power grid operator, predicts that at least 13 GW of solar will be installed in Texas by 2030. See study here:

What does Texas’s solar power boom mean for West Texas towns like Fort Stockton, where a significant number of the state’s large-scale solar projects are being constructed?

Local Fort Stockton leaders and workers on the Roserock solar project, developed by Recurrent Energy and located near Fort Stockton, discuss what solar means for the community.
