Community Solar Burns Bright in Texas Sun

Though solar power is really beginning to take off in Texas, it can still be challenging for some residential homeowners and renters to obtain.  Some locations are not permitted to install solar panels, renters rarely have any say in the matter, many families and individuals cannot afford the up-front costs of going solar, and other sites are just not fit to harvest energy (e.g. there is a lot of tree shade on the property).  Community solar power is growing just in time to save the day.  In areas all across Texas, solar companies are investing in off-site locations to build solar farms for residents restricted from solar energy.
