Why Go Solar
Going solar in Texas is not only a smart financial decision today but a stable, predictable investment for years to come. In 2022, solar panels are no longer a luxury purchase. Significant improvements in solar technology and reductions in installation costs have given Texans the power to save money while giving them greater freedom from reliance on utility companies.
Reduce or Eliminate Your Electric Bill
Powering your home with renewable solar energy can significantly reduce your dependence on utility companies and lower your monthly energy costs.
Better yet, if your home solar system produces more energy than you need that month, many Texas utility companies will give you credit on your next electric bill. That means on those few cloudy days when your solar system isn’t producing enough power, you can apply solar credits to your monthly electricity bill to reduce or even eliminate the
Solar Technology Has Improved Greatly
Since the invention of the first usable solar panel in 1954, solar technology and solar panel efficiency have evolved rapidly. In less than 70 years, solar panel efficiency has increased by more than 100%.
Recently named one of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, Zenernet is making solar smarter with the latest smart home technology. With our easy-to-use monitoring portals, you can conveniently view real-time and long-term solar production stats from any device. In addition to our innovative monitoring systems, we also offer an array of smart home add-ons to help you take control of your home energy use and get even more value out of your solar investment.
Build Equity in Your Home
Not only does solar power help you save on your utility bills, but it can also increase the value of your home. Recent studies show that installing solar panels in your home can increase the value of your home by up to 4.1%. With the typical home value in Texas over $250,000 in 2021, that’s a premium of more than $11,000
Gaining energy independence, adopting the latest technology, lowering utility costs, and building equity on your home are just a few of the reasons why Texas residents are investing in solar with Zenernet.
Protect Yourself From Outages
The events of early 2021 showed the vulnerabilities of Texas’s power grid. Almost 70% of the 25 million Texans whose power is managed by ERCOT lost power, with the average outage lasting 42 hours.
A solar system with a home battery backup add-on is a great way to protect your family from extreme weather conditions. Home batteries store the energy produced by your solar system to use when and how you need it. Zenernet energy consultants can help you decide whether battery backup is right for you depending on your energy needs and whether you want to back up your entire home or only the parts most critical to staying comfortable when the grid is down.

Are Solar Panels Worth It
Simply put, there is no part of Texas that’s a bad place to go solar, and some parts of Texas are among the best environments for solar in the entire country! Many hours of bright sunlight, combined with laws that protect homeowners’ rights to pursue greater energy independence without having to worry about higher tax burdens, make going solar an attractive proposition for Texas residents. Although the cost of power in Texas is not as high as in some states, many Texans are choosing solar to be less reliant on utilities and protect themselves from future cost increases and inflation.
The Sunny State of Texas
Texas residents enjoy an average of 236 sunny days each year, with some cities getting almost 300 days of sun! Zenernet customers can take advantage of that abundant sunshine to significantly offset their monthly utility bill and stay comfortable during the year’s hottest months.
Texas Solar Access Laws and Property Tax Protections
When we talk to homeowners about going solar, a concern they sometimes express is that their homeowners association (HOA) may try to block the project. The good news is that Texas has had laws on the books since the early 1980’s protecting homeowners’ rights. The Texas solar rights law prohibits HOA’s from standing in the way of property owners who want to install most solar energy systems.
Rising property taxes are also a major concern for many homeowners in Texas. Fortunately, Texas has a property tax exemption for renewable energy upgrades, meaning that the value going solar adds to your home won’t increase your property tax burden.
Choosing The Right Solar Panels
For Your Home
When it comes to choosing the right solar equipment for your home, there is a lot to consider. Solar Panels – the most visible component of your system – are not one size fits all. Solar panels vary by type, appearance, performance, and cost.
In addition to the panels, there are several other essential components to your home solar system, including but not limited to the inverter, battery, and racking system. When it comes time to decide on the right equipment for your home, it’s important to remember that every home and location is unique.
At Zenernet, we work with you to design the perfect solar system for your unique needs. We partner with the leading solar equipment manufacturers on the market today to source the best quality solar equipment available. These partnerships allow our team of experts to create a custom combination of components for your home, so you only pay for the solar system you want – nothing more.

Tax Credits and Exemptions
Going solar doesn’t have to be a financial burden. With Zenernet, many homeowners can switch to solar and start saving right away with federal and state incentive programs.
Since implementing the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) in 2006, the U.S. solar industry has grown by more than 10,000%. Due to the success of this program, homeowners will continue to benefit from this tax credit through 2024.
In addition to the federal solar tax credit, many Texas homeowners may be able to take advantage of incentives offered by utilities and local governments. For example, Oncor, one of Texas’s largest electricity providers, offers rebates based on the size of a home’s solar system and estimated decrease in energy usage, with an average rebate payout of approximately $5400.
All Zenernet solar installations qualify for the Federal tax credit. In preparation for your solar installation, our team of energy experts will help you take advantage of the solar tax credit and incentive opportunities that are available to you.
