Texas is not only famous for their oil industry but also for its huge share in the country’s domestically produced energy – and investors know that too! As it was the first state in the nation to produce electricity powered by wind energy, the start of renewable energy generation was made early on. Today, the state is not only very present in the branch of wind energy but it also considered as one of the leading states within the solar energy potential. Therefore, many renewable energy investors are headquartered in Texas of which some will be highlighted in this article.
