Texas is one of the largest resident solar markets
The Lone Star State is the fourth largest residential solar market in the U.S. In 2020, it is estimated that residential installations in Texas will pass 122 megawatts. One megawatt can power over 200 homes on a hot day in Texas. This increase in solar capacity will help meet the increasing energy demands of residents and businesses.
In addition to power generation, Texas residents and businesses are choosing solar energy for several reasons. Some of the main benefits for homeowners and businesses using solar include:
- Warranties provided by companies. Manufacturers often provide residents with a 25-year warranty for their solar modules.
- Environmental benefits. Solar energy provides a sustainable, clean energy alternative to other energy methods that create carbon emissions.
- Backup power. Customers can choose to add a solar-charged battery backup to provide their homes and businesses with energy in the case of an outage or natural disaster.
- Lower energy bills. Solar energy protects customers from current and future volatile energy prices.
