The Texas solar industry is growing. Some fear an international trade case could end that.

Published on June 29, 2017 under CommunityImpact

*Correction appended. After oil prices cratered two years ago, leading to lost jobs across the energy industry, many West Texas workers found relief in what seemed an unlikely place: solar power. Instead of the boom-and-bust cycle of the oil and gas market, these workers sought stability in longer-term construction projects building facilities that harness solar power. Those opportunities, fueled by lower prices for solar panels, helped prevent widespread unemployment, said Doug May, the executive director of the Fort Stockton Economic Development Council.Via Texas Tribune
