"Texas On Track To Add Record Solar Power Capacity By End Of 2022"

"Texas, already the U.S. state with the most wind energy capacity, is catching up to California in utility-scale solar capacity, according to a report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) on Wednesday.

California currently has the most installed utility-scale solar capacity of any state - about 16 gigawatts (GW).

One gigawatt can power about 1 million U.S. homes. But since solar power is on only about a third of the time, a gigawatt of solar can only power about 330,000 homes."
