Fort Worth Lags Behind In Solar
Fort Worth, whose city leaders opened their arms widely to the natural gas industry, isn’t exactly a shining example when it comes to solar energy.
Environment Texas released a report yesterday that ranked major Texas cities for solar usage, and Fort Worth was an afterthought.
“Austin and San Antonio are leading Texas in solar energy because they have adopted strong policies that encourage solar power on residences and businesses, and in utility-scale installations,” the report said.
The municipally owned utilities in those two cities have “supported the installation of four times more solar photovoltaic capacity than the rest of Texas combined or 85 percent of the state total,” the report said.
In other words, other Texas cities aren’t doing much.
Fort Worth ranked seventh.
Woo … uh … hoo?
