The whole state of Texas, especially western Texas, is known for its abundant open country areas. They offer great potential for solar and wind projects which raises the state to one of the greatest potential producers of renewable energy in the US.

Moreover, solar farms are more cost effective in West Texas since insolation levels are greater there. In recent years, the capacity of utility-scale solar farms in Texas has increased substantially. No wonder that many renewable energy investors are purchasing interests in solar assets in Texas with hopes to gain profitable returns.
