Solar Buyback Programs in Texas
The overlooked benefit to adding solar. Net metering is described as a solar buyback program.
Renewable Energy = Savings
When your solar panel array overproduces the excess energy is pushed to the grid where it is redistributed and sold to anyone who is drawing energy, anyone not using solar. As the energy produced by your solar, residential, or commercial, flows from your system to the grid you earn a credit. That credit is used under rare circumstances when a portion of your electricity demands need to be supplemented by the grid. If your credit isn’t used at the end of the month, the credit can roll over and build until it is used.
Like normally electric plans there are a variety of net metering plans available to choose from. The plan you choose is based on the solar goals you set and your system design.
