Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What Happens to My Property Taxes When I Add Solar Panels?

Great news! Texas has a property tax exemption for qualified solar power systems, so you get to deduct the added value from the total value of the home.

So for example. If you purchase a $200,000 home and you buy solar panels for $20,000 to save you money on your electric bills, then your home will likely appraise at $220,000. With the Texas property tax exemption for solar panels, your home is taxed at the original value of $200,000. Read More >

How Long do Solar Panels Typically Last?

The panels themselves will probably outlive us all, but their efficiencies do gradually decrease over time. Fortunately, we use superior American-made products from manufacturers like SolarWorld (panels) and Enphase Energy (inverters). Both have industry-leading warranties of up to 25 years. SolarWorld has been in the business for over 40 years, and they make some awesome products. Just check out this video showing some of SolarWorld’s crazy durability tests.

Wow, hail at 262 mph didn’t even leave a scratch! Read More >

Do Solar Panels Work on Cloudy Days?

Solar panels need sunlight to produce electricity, so unfortunately your system will take a bit of a hit on cloudy days. That being said, the fact that we can even see the clouds means that some sunlight is getting through, so your system will still produce some electricity. Regardless, your system will likely be producing enough energy throughout the year that your excess net metering electrical credits will cover a few rainy days.  Read More >

Are There Any Incentives for Going Solar?

Central Texas is one of the most affordable regions in the U.S. for going solar thanks to a variety of utility programs Austin Energy’s Value of Solar Tariff or the generous ONCOR solar rebates. Scroll a little bit further down and you’ll see the links to the major solar incentives in your area.

P.S. Revolve will help you through the different applications processes, so no need to worry about filling out paperwork!

Are There Any State or Federal Solar Incentives Available?

Unfortunately, Texas does not have any state-level incentives, and they’re not likely for a very long time (if at all).

Fortunately, you can apply for the generous 30% federal solar tax credit to significantly reduce the cost of going solar. You can read all about this powerful incentive here or just scroll down a bit and you’ll see the visual link alongside the other Central Texas solar incentives.

Is My Roof Right for Solar?

There are a lot of factors that go into determining whether or not your roof is right for solar, but generally the best roofs are going to have south-facing exposure, minimal shade and at least a decade of useable life left. East/West-facing roofs will work just fine as well. One of the first steps in going solar will be to schedule for a solar specialist to come out to your home and assess your roof’s health and potential. Once we have all the specifics, we can then design the perfect system to maximize energy production and reduce your electricity bills! Schedule Your Appointment >
