The dirty (or perhaps clean) little secret is that solar is keeping the lights (or at least the A/C) on during this brutal Texas summer. It seems Texas solar is up over 39x in six years. And it’s on a steep upward curve.
Texas solar output is up 39x in six years:
June 2016: 69.8 gigawatt-hours
June 2022: 2,729 gigawatt-hours
