    Solar Energy Industries Association: Texas on Track to Become the Fastest-Growing Utility-Scale Solar Market in the U.S.

    Dive Brief:
    • Texas could become the fastest-growing utility-scale solar market in the United States, according to data compiled by GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). There are more than 500 companies currently operating in the value chain.
    • There are 566 MW of solar currently installed in the state, but capacity is expected to more than double this year, SEIA said.
    • Texas will install more than 4,600 MW of solar capacity in the next five years, with more than 80% of it being utility-scale. Only California will install more solar capacity over the same timeframe.
