      When it comes to solar energy and the installation of photovoltaic systems, Texas in no way compares to places like California, Hawaii, and Arizona. However, Austin is a national hotspot. But to anyone who knows anything about Austin, that should not come as a surprise. I'm sure that with the incredible decline in the price of solar modules we'll see the entire state "going solar" very soon.
