A Buyback Plan enables you to sell any surplus electricity your solar system generates back to an electric company. (Remember, you don't consume all the excess electricity you produce).
This will help you generate credits and accumulate them during the day (for the night), as well as in the sunny months for the cloudy months of the year. To maximize the benefits of your solar panel system in Texas, it's crucial to choose the best plan for your home.
With the help of Texas Power Guide and Solar United Neighbors, we provide comprehensive information about these plans. Rates and terms vary constantly, so always do your math to choose the one that best suits your particular situation.
These plans are available in regulated areas and where credit unions offer them as part of their services.
