It’s a well-known fact that Texans love Texas. Residents of the Lone Star State are known for boasting about their home and their love of freedom, football, and food. And, with enough solar energy to power over 600,000 homes in the state, many homeowners are making the switch to clean renewable energy to save money and keep the environment flourishing. With a growing economy and increasing electricity consumption, Texas is expected to become a nationwide leader in solar energy.
That being said, now is the time to go solar in the Lone Star State! Texas is ranked 4th in the nation for rooftop solar potential! Prices for solar panels have fallen 38% in the last few years and solar continues to become more and more affordable as advances in technology are made. With its hot summers and mostly mild winters, Texas is also the perfect candidate for solar panels to produce optimum energy for your home throughout the entire year. There has never been a better time to go solar in Texas, and Blue Raven Solar is going to help you make the most of your solar purchase.
Knowing if solar ownership, lease, or a power purchase agreement (PPA) is the best option for your home can be confusing. We are here to help you make the best choice.

Here are a few of our favorite facts about Texas: it’s bigger than any European country, it’s the second most populous state in the country, it uses its own power grid separate from the rest of the United States, and it’s the birth place of Dr. Pepper. Texans are proud of their home state and all it has to offer, and many Texans are making the switch to solar energy to save money and to preserve their beautiful home.
That being said, is it worth it to switch to solar in the Lone Star State? Texas is one of the sunniest states in the nation, and with so much sun, solar can help Texans save big on utility bills. But what local incentives do they offer?
Without a statewide law enforcing net metering, many homeowners miss out on programs that help save during less sunny months. Most of Texas’ larger utilities will buy excess production from solar panels at near retail rates.
All solar panels in Texas are exempt from property tax. This means that any extra value added to your home because of your solar array will not be added to your property tax.
Solar rebates in Texas are highly dependent upon where you live. Here are some solar rebates in Texas:
Less than 3% of the current U.S. population are enjoying the benefits & savings of solar energy. Our joy is knowing that Blue Raven Solar customers are saving money and reducing their carbon footprint. We want the same for you.
With the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) of 30% and these other local incentives, Texas residents are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. We’re excited to help you throughout your solar journey and hope to help you make a positive impact on the environment while saving you thousands on your electricity bill!
