Obstacles that have long thwarted the rapid growth of solar that sunny Texas has always promised -- the deregulated market and a dearth of renewable incentives -- are posing less of a hindrance in the face of cheap power purchase contracts.

Falling costs, retirements of fossil-fueled generation, and demand growth have been instrumental in driving solar growth in the region.
