Solar panels are perched atop a retail store in Austin, Texas December 15, 2010. Texas could see a boom in solar generation if the state's legislature passes renewable incentives in 2011. Texas has long been home to Big Oil companies that specialize in extracting petroleum from hard-to-reach places. Now the hip college town of Austin is vying to become the epicenter of a potentially giant market for carbon-free electricity generated by the hot Texas sun. Picture taken December 15, 2010.
