THE CURRENT STATE OF THE RESIDENTIAL SOLAR INDUSTRY IN TEXAS
Recently, Texas homeowners have been under attack by the relentless campaigns from solar companies, overtaking inboxes, voicemails and computer ad space. The amount of misinformation is overwhelming, with solar companies promising ‘free’ solar systems, preposterous returns for the energy that is sent to the utility and some companies going so far as promising monthly profits for going solar.
In addition, there are so many fly-by-night companies that have flooded into the market. It seems almost impossible to determine who is reputable enough to earn your business with the promise that they will still be in business after your system is installed. All of that is before Texans begin to consider servicing and maintenance for their systems, and wondering what will happen if the solar system does not produce the amount of energy that a sales rep has promised them. In short, there are a lot of boxes to check before a homeowner can get some piece of mind about installing solar on their most valued asset: their home.
