California vs Texas on Solar Power (Infographic)

Our friends over at renewableenergysolar.net have made a new solar smackdown infographic. 1Sun4All.com asked how California would compare to Texas. The following infographic shows us the results. Check out the numbers on total solar Companies and solar jobs per capita below! Would you like to know how your state ranks? RenewableEnergySolar will make a custom infographic for you! Click that link fill out their form (which is on the right side of their page). The following text accompanies renewableenergysolar‘s infographic:

We recently received a request to create a smackdown between California and Texas. We knew that the end result was not going to be pretty, but always welcome competition and an interesting match-up. With the world’s 9th largest economy, almost as many solar homes as people in Wyoming, and a Renewable Portfolio Standard target of 33% (a third of the state’s energy coming from renewables) by 2020, it comes with no surprise that California dominates this one. And while Texas edged out California with cheaper electric rates, the country’s largest state could not keep up with The Golden West.

Watch for the upcoming North Carolina vs. Virginia solar smackdown.

Let the smackdown begin!

It seems so far that all of our solar smackdown’s have truly held up to their name, encountering no ‘split-decisions’. Check out our other showdowns including Maryland vs. VirginiaAlabama vs. Tennessee, and the upcoming North Carolina vs. Virginia.

Author’s Note: Thanks to Renewable Energy Corporation for this fun infographic. I’d like to see a comparison between these two giants and their wind power capacity. Remember that you can also request a custom solar infographic of your state compared to another state.
