We recently received a request to create a smackdown between California and Texas. We knew that the end result was not going to be pretty, but always welcome competition and an interesting match-up. With the world’s 9th largest economy, almost as many solar homes as people in Wyoming, and a Renewable Portfolio Standard target of 33% (a third of the state’s energy coming from renewables) by 2020 it comes with no surprise that California dominates this one. And while Texas edged out California with cheaper electric rates, the country’s largest state could not keep up with The Golden West.
It seems so far that all of our smackdown’s have truly held up to their name, encountering no ‘split-decisions’. Check out our other showdown’s including Maryland vs. Virginia, Alabama vs. Tennessee and the upcoming North Carolina vs. Virginia??smackdown.
Let the smackdown begin!
