Solar: Houston, TX

Compare Electricity has developed a solar score for Texas to help residents and businesses determine if a solar installation is a viable and cost-effective solution. The solar score is based on a combination of many different factors. Houston received a solar score of 59 which is the same as the state average. Houston is located in the southwestern part of the state, a region that receives more sunlight than the national average. However, the region is also prone to inclement weather off the Gulf of Mexico. Houston has a large average roof size of 663 sqft. This means that more solar capacity can potentially be installed. For more information and for a solar quote, see the solar score below.
