Your Renewable Energy Experts
Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into a clean, green source of energy. At Bandera Electric Cooperative, our experienced professionals will design a solar power system for your home that meets your custom energy needs. Our experience makes it a simple, powerful, and efficient process if you choose solar energy as the trusted power source for your home.
Solar power is environmentally-friendly, clean energy that is renewable and reliable. It reduces our overall dependence on fossil fuels as well. A solar energy solution from BEC delivers the self-sustainability that many of our members and customers want, while also offering low utility rates and other financial advantages.
Is Solar for You?
If you own a single-family home with a roof that is in the sunlight and in good condition, then your home is a great candidate for solar. Even if your roof doesn’t have access to the sun, many homes in partially shaded areas can benefit from solar as well.
According to the US Department of Energy, there are a number of steps to follow if you’re considering solar energy, including:
- Analyze your home's energy efficiency
- Assess your solar potential, along with any limitations
- Figure out your options for going solar
- Review and estimate your solar energy needs
- Obtain bids and site assessments from contractors
- Review all available financing and incentives
- Work with an experienced company and utility to install the system
Solar can also offer financial advantages such as federal tax incentives. In addition, you’ll have the ability to sell your excess energy to the BEC grid. From 100 kW solar units for larger properties to 5 kW residential designs, BEC Solar engineers will design the right solar solution custom-designed to meet your clean energy objectives.
Bandera Electric is now servicing the San Antonio metropolitan area as well, with many aggressive rebates being offered for qualified homeowners. We’d be happy to discuss how much you can save by going with solar power if you’re in the San Antonio area.
