How Solar Installation in Texas Can Help Lower Your Air Conditioning Bills

Air conditioning is our best defense against the relentless Texas heat, but it’s not cheap. Running your AC around the clock is bound to jack up your electric bills.

If you're wondering how you can keep your AC bill low this summer without suffering through the heat, it might be time to think about a solar panel installation for your San Antonio home.

Solar Panels Turn Sunlight into Electricity

The Texas sun is what makes summers so hot here in San Antonio, but it’s also what can help us fight off the heat! Solar panels work by absorbing sunlight and converting it into electricity that can be used to power electric appliances like your central air conditioning. The fuel they use to create electricity—sunlight—is free, making solar power more affordable than the electricity you buy from the grid, which is created primarily by burning expensive fossil fuels.

You can finance your solar installation in San Antonio, and in most cases, your monthly payments will be lower than your monthly electric bills. Once you pay off your solar power system, you’ll be generating electricity to cool your home for free.

You Can Run Any Air Conditioner with Solar Power

All types of air conditioning systems are powered by electricity, so no matter what type of cooling system you have in your home, you can run it on solar power.

You can use solar to power:

  • Central air conditioning
  • Window AC units
  • Heat pumps
  • Ductless mini splits

Solar Panels & Battery Storage Make Your Power More Reliable

Not only does solar save on air conditioning costs, but it also makes your electricity access more reliable. Installing solar panels is like putting a personal power plant on your roof. The power you generate is for your home exclusively and you have total control over it, unlike grid-generated power which is out of your hands completely.

If you pair your solar installation with battery storage, you’ll be able to keep your solar panels on whenever the grid goes down, protecting you against power outages. The Texas electric grid will be under strain this summer and if we are hit with an extreme heat wave, you may lose power. Install solar panels and battery storage now to prepare!
