Wyoming Solar – Everything You Need to Know

wyoming solar

Information about Solar Panels in Wyoming

Its reputation as the Cowboy State might have something to do with the current "Wild West" status of the Wyoming solar industry, as there's not much in the way of endorsement or regulation from the state government. More likely than that is the fact that the state's primary industries revolve around mining fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas.

​In other words, local utilities have a plentiful source of cheap raw materials to work with right now, which means they don't have much incentive to look for renewable sources of energy. However, if ​the state's population​ adopts a bit of foresight and sees the long-term benefits of renewable resources, that could change​.

Dallas Solar – Everything You Need to Know

Information about Solar Panels in Dallas, Texas

Texas’ electricity infrastructure is quite an anomaly when compared to most states. Instead of one electricity company both generating the electricity and maintaining the equipment to get it to you (poles, wires, transformers, etc), Texas is a deregulated market.

As such, Texas residents can purchase electricity from any electricity generation company they choose, though one company (Oncor in Dallas) is responsible for maintaining the local electricity grid.

Deregulation was meant to lower electricity prices for customers by introducing competition into an industry that has historically been dominated by quasi-monopolies regulated by the state.

In Dallas, you can choose from dozens of electricity providers. Some provide the cheapest electricity possible, while others are more expensive but offer incentives or bonus programs. Some even sell 100% clean energy (Green Mountain Energy, for example).

All this is great, but what if you want to produce your own electricity by installing solar? In this unique market, what kind of return could you see and how much would it cost? Does Dallas or its utilities offer any special incentives for going solar?
