California might have the most solar panels installed over other states but Texas continues to grow extremely quick in the amount of its installed solar. In fact, Austin, Texas continues this trend most recently with approval of another 162 MW of solar!

This comes on the heels of another approval of 288 MW as a renewal of previous initiatives. Not only does this indicate a commitment to solar but proof that solar works!

“This deal is another hedge against the volatility of prices in the fossil fuel market. It is a win for the environment, a win for clean energy, and a win for Austin ratepayers,” said Cyrus Reed, Conservation Director of the Sierra Club’s Lone Star Chapter, an organization dedicated to the preservation of the Texas environment.

The cost breakdown of this addition is around $40 per MWh.
