San Antonio FAQs

As of 2021, a Freedom Solar customer can expect to pay an average of $42,000 for an eight-kilowatt residential solar panel system. However, this is before state- and city-based rebates and incentives, as well as the federal solar tax credit, go into effect.

Read our blog on how much solar panels cost in San Antonio for more information.

San Antonio sees an average of 220 sunny days and ranks fifth in installed solar capacity among major cities in the U.S. This makes San Antonio one of the best places to go solar. 

This cost will vary depending on the make and model of your solar panels. However, choosing Freedom Solar as your provider will give you an eight-kW SunPower solar panel system for an average of $42,000, as of 2021. 

This price includes the panels, mounting equipment, inverters, conduit, labor, and project management costs such as permits, inspections, and HOA approvals.

Solar panels will increase the value of your home but they won’t increase your property taxes. Texas provides a state-wide property tax exemption for solar panel system owners. This means that you won’t have to pay additional taxes based on the increased value of your home.

Yes, theoretically. An off-grid solar panel system is entirely independent of an electric utility provider. However, your solar panel system will have to generate enough solar energy on a daily basis to power your home. If it doesn’t, you won’t be able to draw power from your utility. 

Investing in home backup power with a battery will help you set aside energy in case your panels don’t produce enough energy on any given day.

Essentially, yes. After making an investment in solar panels, you gain the benefit of full energy independence. You won’t have to rely on your utility provider as long as your panels produce enough solar energy to power your home electricity needs.  

You won’t be able to get a government grant for solar panels. However, there are rebates (which work in a similar way) that you can qualify for if you own solar panels. 

As a San Antonio resident, you are likely using CPS Energy as your utility provider. CPS Energy offers a flat incentive of $2,500 for any residential or commercial solar project in the city. The rebate is available on a first come, first serve basis and drops to $1,500 when the funding pool is allocated.

The federal solar investment tax credit (ITC) will save you 26% on the total cost of your solar project if installed in 2021 and 2022. It decreases to 22% in 2023, then drops to 0% in 2024 for residential projects. However, the ITC will remain at 10% for commercial projects.

Yes, you can sell electricity back to the grid in Texas — this is called net metering. Net metering programs are typically managed by your Retail Electric Provider (REP), which vary depending on your specific location in Texas. 

CPS Energy, for example, serves the San Antonio area and offers a net metering program for residential and commercial customers with no limit on the system’s size. There are also zero commissioning fees or facility charges.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Before purchasing our Sun Power panels from Freedom Solar, my husband research most of the companies in the San Antonio area before committing to Freedom Solar. We are very satisfied with the workmanship and professionalism from start to finish. I wouldn’t go with any other company!

Regina F., San Antonio

Freedom Solar took care of everything. They answered our questions, walked us through the process, and handled all paperwork, including the utility interconnection agreement and rebate incentive documents. It was a complete turnkey solution. In the end they under-promised and over-delivered, making us very satisfied customers.

Robert “Dick” Tips, Mission Park, San Antonio

“Taking time to help me understand the panels, inverters, and installation details from a product perspective is what won me over initially. I appreciate your knowledge of the product.While I look for the best bang for my buck, the best bang is just as important to me as the buck. I appreciate your company’s commitment to quality.

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.
