The Texas Solar Power Association (TSPA), the statewide industry trade association that promotes the development of solar electric generation in Texas, is pleased to announce the appointment of Ron L. Nickelson to its Board of Directors.
"The Texas Solar Power Association has been extremely effective in advancing the development of solar electric power generation in Texas. I am very excited to have this opportunity to join the TSPA Board of Directors. Texas has become the second fastest growing solar market in the country with the potential to beat out California for the No. 1 spot," said Nickelson. "Wood Mackenzie, the global energy analyst, recently increased forecasts from 14% to 25% growth in 2019 compared to 2018, with more than 13 GW of installations expected by year's end, a substantial amount of the growth will ultimately be contributed to the incredible growth our industry has experienced in Texas. The next five years are going to be exciting for the Texas Solar Industry."
"We are pleased to welcome Ron Nickelson to the TSPA Board," said TSPA Executive Director, Charlie Hemmeline. "As an industry leader in the construction of large-scale power plants, TSPA will benefit from his unique perspective on labor management and the enthusiasm he brings to the space."
