    OCI Solar Power is building the 110-megawatt, Alamo 6 solar farm in Iraan in West Texas to provide renewable power to the city of San Antonio. The project is slated to come online by the end of the year. OCI signed a long-term power contract with San Antonio's municipal utility, CPS Energy.

    How does solar power affect electricity prices in Texas? What is the value of solar power in a state without net metering? And how much will the solar industry grow in Texas over the new few years?

    These are just a few questions that speakers will address during a two-day summit for solar power companies in Austin this week.

    Hosted by the national trade group the Solar Energy Industries Association, the conference on Tuesday and Wednesday will feature speakers from some of Texas' leading retail and electric companies.
