Everyone knows solar panels are pricey, but most don’t know that you can get solar panels with no upfront cost with a solar lease or power purchase agreement (PPA).
If you are a TXU, Reliant, or Green Mountain Energy customer, you can be paid for the energy your panels produce that you don’t use. If you aren’t a customer, you can always switch.
NRG and Solar City offer lease or PPA programs. However, starting May 1st, the energy rates for the electricity that is not produced by the panels will increase. You can lock in rates if you sign an agreement before May 1st.
For NRG, call 888-255-7785
For Solar City, call 888-765-2489 ext 8901
Please don’t forget about the community meeting this Saturday, April 26th at Metro South Winds Fellowship Church on Belt Line Rd.
Below is a flyer you should have received earlier this week.
We hope to see you all there, and please don’t forget to complete the community survey if you haven’t done so already.
Hopefully you have noticed the changes to the entryway on Belt Line Rd. We had the old shrubs removed and hope to get beautiful roses and flowers planted on Monday.
This project is paid for in part by a grant from the City of DeSoto. We have also applied for a grant to install irrigation and complete landscaping at the Cockrell Hill entryway.
We hope to see you all at the April 26th meeting at 11 a.m.
