Solar power is an emerging clean energy option that can positively impact North Texas’ environment and save consumers money on their electric bills. Dallas-Fort Worth is a prime location for solar technology and its growth due to the region’s climate and geography. Solar power can provide much of the needed electricity when electricity demand is highest - when it’s hot and the sun is shining.
With proper implementation, solar energy will help to improve air quality by decreasing the amount of fossil fuel power generation needed. This corresponds to reduced emissions that contribute to Texas' air pollution and current nonattainment status for the pollutant ozone in several regions.
