One of the Targets in Summary Goal 2 (Energy; draft pg. 2) is “739,000 MWh and 3,695,000 MWh solar power installed by 2030 and 2050 respectively”, and apparently reflected in action B11 Implementation Table Potential Outcome Metric (draft pg. 146) “# of residential solar permits issued”. Is the Target both residential and commercial? There are several problems with trying to track MWh by permits (both residential and commercial) including that most Dallas residential permits (that I’ve seen) don’t include kW or kWh estimates (there are 1000 kW in a MW); as the trend towards offering solar as a standard feature continues and Oncor incentives (which lead builders to add solar after the initial construction is complete) decline, the solar may be included in the new home construction permit and be more difficult to find; and most reporting (that I’ve seen) is in MW capacity (sometimes DC, sometimes AC), since estimates of MWh energy produced are more complicated. The best way to track this is probably to get the interconnection information from Oncor, which has been difficult for private entities to obtain because of Oncor’s concern for customer privacy, but which the City may have more success with. One example is Environment America’s Shining Cities Report, which has included Dallas for several years. The 2020 report should be out soon; the 2019 report pdf date is 4/3/19 and is available at: https://environmentamerica.org/feature/ame/shining-cities-2019 It shows 9.6 MW (I calculate roughly 13,920 MWh/yr using a rough conversion factor of 1450 kWh/yr/kW dc) at the end of 2018, and a “Rooftop Solar PV Potential on Small Buildings” of 2,083 MW (3,020,350 MWh/yr).
