Eco-friendly Texas Solar Panels

July 6, 2011

There is no argument from anyone that solar energy is some of the greenest energy on Earth. It does not have to be manufactured, only captured. As such, there are no harmful by-products for the environment. It is also completely renewable and it is entirely possible to harness extra power to store as a backup supply for when the panels can’t charge due to cloud coverage. Indeed, with the complete and total benefits of Texas solar panels, it is difficult to fathom why this energy is not being used more. The reasons usually boil down to affordability and practicality.

To address the issue of the cost of Texas solar panels, there is some very good news. There are tax credits that homeowners can claim that will offset up to 30% of the total cost of installation. The $2,000 cap is no longer in place, so you can go as big as you like and still get the full credit, even if it exceeds $2,000. You may also be able to qualify for a home improvement loan to pay for the installation, so you can make manageable payments over time.

It is a requirement that all electricity service providers must offer net metering. What this means is that if your home is generating power, your meter actually runs backwards. You may or may not qualify for a credit at the end of the month depending on the terms of service with your company, but you will save for every kilowatt hour you produce up to the total amount used.
