Western Texas gets more sunlight throughout the day the eastern Texas. An estimated 85% of Texas household is viable for solar installation and have no obstructions. Texas residents have larger roofs on average than the rest of the country with the average Texas roof able to hold 9.4 kW of solar panels.
