The Lone Star State may be best known for its oil industry, but it also leads the nation in one renewable energy and has the potential to do a lot more.

Texas is the largest wind-power state, with a capacity of 9,410 megawatts. It also gets tons of sunshine and could be a huge solar-power generator, too.

In recent years, Texans have filled up utility-run solar incentive programs as quickly as cattle on a stampede; many languish on solar waiting lists. Some folks are urging the state to set up its own solar incentives to tap this unfulfilled demand.

If you want to install renewable energy systems, such as solar or wind, on your residential or business property, there are some Texas energy tax incentives to help you pay for it.

Plus there are myriad incentives offered by local Texas power companies.
