Charlie Hemmeline, executive director of the Texas Solar Power Association (TSPA), will discuss recent trends and developments in solar power, and share his outlook for advancements in supportive policy as Texas’ legislature convenes. This renowned oil and gas state is also a global leader in renewable energy production. Solar developers and investors alike are eager to extend the success wind power has experienced in this energy state. Although the potential is large, solar has lagged other energy producers in terms of regional and state support. TSPA has been established to be a statewide industry trade association focused on eliminating the roadblocks that have prevented solar from wide acceptance in the lone star state.
