“We’re in the third generation for large-scale build outs” of solar technology, Harris said. “We’ve learned a lot about how to be more efficient.”
In fact, as of mid 2013, installation prices for solar power were lower in Texas than anywhere else in the country, and the price is still hovering around a remarkably-low five cents per kilowatt hour.
“[Texas' state government] was just never going to come and develop the strategy for how to get it,” said Sinkin. “Now I think that with the rapid expansion of solar in Texas, there’s going to be more and more political support.”
