Austin FAQs

As a Freedom Solar customer using SunPower solar panels, it costs an average of $38,000 for an 9.1-kilowatt residential system as of 2022. This cost includes equipment, labor, and project management costs such as permitting and inspections from homeowners associations (HOAs)

However, federal incentives as well as state- and city-based rebates and incentives will go into effect and further lower your total cost. Read our blog on how much solar panels cost in Austin for more information.

Austin is a great place to go solar. On average, the city sees about 228 sunny days, and 85% of rooftops in Austin are equipped to accommodate solar panels. 

Additionally, as an Austin resident, you’re most likely using Austin Energy as your utility provider. Austin Energy provides a $2,500 rebate for homeowners going solar, which might be the final push needed to begin your solar project. 

Solar panels increase the resale price of your home, but they won’t increase your property taxes. Texas offers property tax exemptions to ensure that homeowners don’t have to pay additional taxes based on the increased resale value of their home. 

The federal government offers a solar investment tax credit (ITC) to subsidize the purchase and installation costs of residential and commercial solar panel systems. 

The ITC allows you to save 30% on the total cost of your solar project if installed before 2032, and decreases to 26% in 2033.

Unfortunately, Texas does not offer a state-wide tax credit for solar projects.

Solar panels are extremely durable, lasting an average of 25 years. Freedom Solar uses SunPower solar panels, which are some of the most efficient and longest-lasting panels on the market. Only one in 20,000 SunPower solar panels fail. 

Freedom Solar offers a 25-year lifetime warranty for performance, product, and workmanship to ensure your panels remain in shape and maintain an energy output of at least 92% of their original production. 

Solar panels typically require little maintenance, but it’s still an essential part of owning a solar panel system.

Maintaining your solar panels will keep their efficiency at top-rated performance levels, and also increase their lifespan. Clearing dirt, debris, snow, and more will help your panels maximize their energy output. 

And regardless of whether you have a roof-, wall-, or ground-mounted system, our solar repair and maintenance service department can assist you with maintenance, repairs, and inspections if needed. 

Selling electricity back to the grid is called net metering and is available through your Retail Electric Provider (REP). However, there are various electricity markets across the state of Texas. 

Austin Energy, for example, offers a Value of Solar (VoS) rate tariff. They calculate your solar credit by taking your total energy generation hours in kWh, then multiplying it by your applicable VoS rate (for residential and commercial customers, it’s $0.97 per kWh)  

Freedom Solar Power services homeowners and businesses throughout the Austin area, including Pflugerville, Round Rock, Cedar Park, Leander, Buda, Manor, Elgin, Southpark Meadows, Kyle, and more.

Austin solar rebates can be combined with other local incentives and federal tax credits to make the switch to solar power systems accessible. These financial incentives, combined with increasing electric utility rates, make solar energy an investment decision that will continue to provide cost savings for years to come.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I was very happy with Freedom. An ideal contractor. Well informed, perfect communication, great installation process, superb product, total warranty on everything (not just the modules). I’d recommend them to anyone looking for a solid residential solar installer in Austin.

Cyrus T., Austin, Texas

I’ve had my solar installed by Freedom for just about a month now and figured between all the weather events we had now’s a good time to write my review.

When I decided to get solar, I contacted 10 companies. Some may feel that excessive but for the money you spend for solar you want to make sure you’re getting the best deal. Once I choose Freedom I instantly knew I picked a great company. They were responsive and made me feel like more than an account number. The company took care of all the paperwork with the HOA and permits for the city. I am more than thrilled with picking Freedom.

Roberto V., Austin, Texas

Great experience with Freedom Solar. Exactly what I’d hoped for based on reading the other reviews. They were prompt, professional and trustworthy. Our new system is working great and generating as expected.

Home Battery Backup Systems

Backup power is a system that connects to electricity sources, typically solar panels and the electric grid, to store excess power and return it to your home when you need it, generally because of a power outage during an emergency. In most cases, your backup power supply will come from a generator or a battery. Today’s solar batteries are also intelligent energy management systems that can optimize your home’s energy usage to take advantage of utility time-of-use plans or to ensure that your electric car is charged with solar power.

Backup Power Systems We Offer:

  • Solar battery backup power systems including Tesla Powerwall
  • Home generators
