Going Solar Is Easy & Affordable

Your electricity bills are too high…and electricity is getting more expensive. But you’re at the mercy of your utility company and rates aren’t going down. What’s worse is that energy made by utilities comes at a high cost – our planet and our health.

Going Solar Process

Professional site visit, shading analysis, and system design by a NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) Professional Installer.
System design includes location of the solar array, inverter, AC & DC disconnects, meter and electric panel boxes
Applications for permits, utility, HOA and other agencies are completed and filed to collect potential incentives and necessary permits.
The system is then installed and quality checks are completed.
The city will then inspect the installation.
Upon their approval, the utility company also completes their review of the system and installation.
Permission to Operate. Final testing is completed to ensure your system is operating properly and it is officially turned on.

How Solar Works

Although they may look complicated, solar panels have no moving parts and require very little maintenance, other than occasional cleaning. An inverter takes the DC power directly from the solar panels and converts it to the same AC power that your home uses. There is no need to change your appliances. Solar + battery storage is a great combination but batteries are optional. Nothing in your home will have to change.

Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity that your home can use, reducing your electricity bills. Solar is more affordable than utilities and a range of financing options can help you generate savings right away.
During the day you’ll power your home with solar power. If you produce more electricity than needed, it is exported to the grid for utility company credit, and these credits help cover the cost of utility provided power at night.
Your monitoring system sends information about how much power your solar system is producing in real-time so you can maintain optimal system performance.

26% Federal Tax Credit

The investment tax credit (ITC), also known as the federal solar tax credit, allows you to deduct 26 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes. Don’t wait! The federal ITC steps down to 22% at the end of 2023 and then it’s gone forever for homeowners.

Tax incentives solar step down

As a Texas homeowner, you know that property tax exemptions can be a pretty big deal. So you’ll be happy to hear The Lone Star State offers a solid property tax exemption for home solar system owners. Meaning, the resulting boost in your home value from installing a system — which could increase by 4% or more — will be exempt 100% from your property tax increase.

Checklist To Choose A Solar Installer

Here is a helpful checklist with guidelines for selecting the best solar company for your solar installation. These tips and questions will help you identify which solar companies have the experience, quality products, trained personnel and the financial strength you want. The quality of the solar installer and equipment you select will directly affect your long-term savings and the system’s reliability. Pick the right combination and you’ll be setup for decades of success.

Make sure you’re getting the best equipment and service from a trusted company. Find out how long they have been in business and read reviews from third party sites like Yelp, Google, Solar Reviews and BBB.
If a salesperson pressures you by telling you the price will increase tomorrow, they’re not the right partner. A trusted company will help guide you along every step from selecting the best financing for you. It is very common for solar companies to push a single financing product that makes them the most money even if it’s not in the customer’s best interest. Be very cautious about any company that only recommends a solar lease or PPA as these are the most costly options available. At Green Star Solar Solutions we are not incentivized by any of our financing options.
Cut out the middleman and deal directly with the solar contractor. Never e-sign a contract before you ask them if they handle service requests and repairs. If the right equipment is installed in the right way, your solar system should operate without incident for many years. But what if something does go wrong? If it ever does, you’ll want a company that has a dedicated and experienced service department that can quickly diagnose and resolve issues in the field. Green Star Solar Solutions has a dedicated services department and we make every effort to correct any issue in the shortest time possible.
Ask for a copy of the contractor’s and subcontractor’s license, insurance and worker’s comp policies to ensure that you will not liable for damages or injuries during installation.
Don’t sign a contract until you review which payment method is best for your situation.

Show Off Your Sustainable Side

The sun is the most abundant source of energy available. In fact, the sun produces more energy in an hour than humanity uses in an entire year! Reducing our carbon footprint is critical to ensuring our planet can provide a safe environment for generations to come. More new solar energy generating systems have been added to the grid than the worst carbon emitting power plants every year for several years, and this trend is expected to grow!
