You have that "Why don't we look into solar" moment...usually right after you get an electric bill
Solar CenTex does an initial site visit to confirm solar suitability
Solar CenTex prepares a full proposal, tailored to your financial needs, electric requirements, and home.
Review and sign the paperwork agreement to get the process started.
Obtain financing/give a down payment either from our 3rd party financing or from your bank. If paying cash, we require a 10% downpayment at contract signing.
Our office manager will work with your local municipalities (if required) to approve all the necessary paperwork and documentation to move forward with your installation.
We will submit an application to your electric provider and submit all documentation that is required to ensure that all of the equipment can be installed.
We schedule an installation date once the city and/or utility grants us permission to install the system.
We will request for inspection from the city and/or utility. Once that is complete, the utility will install a net meter and give us permission to turn on your system. We will contact you once the inspection is scheduled.
Your utility company needs to grant us permission to operate (PTO). They usually will give us a written letter or a verbal "go ahead." With approval, we will turn on your system and set up your web-based monitoring (if applicable) to allow you to see your solar production immediately.
Putting solar on your home is not difficult…but it is a process that will take time and knowledge. Expect 3-4 weeks to get from the point where your power bills are driving you nuts to photons hitting your roof to provide electricity from your new panels.
Every location in Central Texas is different - we know each utility / cooperative and how to optimize a system for your needs in that specific area
We’re in the middle of the Oncor service area and are surrounded by four electric cooperatives. Each one is different, but we know how to apply, approve, and install systems in these areas.
In the Oncor area? We’ll help coordinate the electric surplus agreements so you get the credit you deserve for electricity you feed back to the grid.
In Bartlett? We understand their net-metering policy and can design to maximize the potential for you.
In PEC? We understand how they credit your surplus energy…to a certain level. That’s why we don’t “over-design” a system that won’t return the best value to you.
Hamilton Co-op, Heart of Texas…
Other companies will try to get you to buy their “package” but we design each and every system to your needs, in your area.
