Solar In Central Texas

Solar In Central Texas
The US now has over 6,400 MW of installed solar electric capacity, enough to power more than 1 million average American households, and the average cost of a completed PV system dropped by 33 percent in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the third quarter of 2011. Considering the amount of sun we get here, you would assume that Texans are especially privy to the solar rush - and you would be correct.

With Austin Energy's rebate program fueling their goal of generating 35% of power consumed from renewable resources by 2020, and CPS Energy's similarly strong rebate program fueled by San Antonio's outspoken defender of renewables, Julian Castro, the future of solar in central Texas is promising.

Residential demand is steadily growing from neighborhood to neighborhood and HOAs are catching on to the community benefits of solar PV. Meanwhile, financing plans are being developed to bring the costs down to near grid-parity. Commercial customers are seeing similar advances, making the relevance of solar unavoidable to businesses facing the reality of increasing utility costs, particularly during the intense heat of Texas summers.

The fact is: it's not a matter of "if" you will reap the benefits of solar PV, but "when". Call Freedom Solar for a free site assessment and join the solar revolution.
