Are solar panels worth it in Texas

June 25, 2020 | 2min read

Texas is the nation’s fifth-largest state for installed residential solar capacity. Thanks to falling hardware prices, solar panels are worth it in Texas! To get the most value out of installing solar panels in Texas, you need to do your homework before going solar. You need to choose your retail electric provider, and depending on where you live, there may be dozens to choose from. Additionally, based on your region, there may be local incentives that can save you money when going solar in Texas. 

Texas’ deregulated retail electric market

One of the first things you should do when going solar in Texas is to choose your retail electric provider. The best place to start is to go to the Power to Choose website. On it, you’ll enter your zip code and answer a few questions, then you’ll be given a list of retail electric providers in your area. You will want to examine each company’s plans for both the rates they’ll charge you for electricity and how much they compensate you for energy produced by your solar system.
