There are a lot of reasons for Texans to go solar right now. We have found our program makes the most sense for property owners that can either pay upfront or have the ability to qualify for low interest financing with our partners. Our current company incentives, paired with the 30% earned income federal tax credit (only benefits those that are eligible from paying federal income taxes) have made solar not only a good thing to do for the future, but economic sense as well.

Texans are known for conservation
Yes, Texas is known for oil, gas, and even black coal energy production, but did you know – Texas is also a huge producer of renewable energy? No wonder, with being one of the largest states in the country, there are huge energy demands.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average annual electricity cost per Texas household is $1,801, among the highest in the nation; the cost is similar to other warm weather states like Florida, according to EIA’s Residential Energy Consumption Survey.
