Benefits of Solar In Houston


Are solar panels right for your Houston-area home? Beyond potential financial savings, there are environmental reasons to go solar as well as the potential for a major return on your investment.

  1. Own Your Power — Protect your family from rising energy costs by owning your power. Becoming less reliant on the grid means less stress about higher electric bills.
  2. Potentially Reduce Your Electric Bill — Your solar system can help you potentially save thousands in electric bills over time.
  3. Qualify For Federal Tax Credit — Homeowners who install solar panels on their property can currently claim a federal tax credit of up to 26%.5
  4. Potentially Increase Your Property’s Value — Solar energy is becoming increasingly popular. If you choose to sell your home, potential buyers will see the benefit of having lower electric bills. Studies show that solar panels can raise your home’s value, which means a potentially higher return on investment should you sell.
  5. Reduce Your Carbon Footprint — Solar energy is an earth-friendly alternative to fossil fuels.

What Happens to Excess Solar Energy?

Solar panels can produce more energy than you use daily. Fortunately, this excess energy can be used in two ways.

Store excess energy in a backup battery.3

Your Generac battery backup can store excess energy from your solar panels for use at night when panels are not producing electricity or in the event of a grid power outage. In addition, the stored energy can fill the gaps when your home’s solar panels are not producing at full capacity.

Use excess energy via net metering.

Net metering is the process of sending extra energy from solar panels back to the grid in exchange for credits on future electric bills. You can often receive credits for the energy you sell back at a 1-to-1 ratio, meaning that you sell it back at the same price you would buy it. While this is a great incentive to go solar, it’s important to note that net metering is not offered by all utility companies. Availability, excess credits and other requirements vary by area and utility providers.
