Residential Solar Power

Learn the perks of a residential solar panel system.

Homeowners gain two big benefits from a residential solar system: 1) clean energy and 2) saving money on energy costs.

Harnessing energy from the sun and converting it to clean energy to power your home — or even a car — reduces your carbon footprint and saves on energy costs for years to come. From 2010 to 2017, the cost to install residential solar dropped by more than 70%.1 Owning a residential solar system is definitely within reach.

When you go solar with one of our preferred installation partners, you can save thousands on installation costs with our exclusive residential solar rebate.2 You can also use the clean energy your system produces to charge an electric vehicle for an even cleaner way to drive (while reducing your carbon footprint even more).

Benefits of solar energy:

Save money.
Lower your monthly utility bill and lock in a fixed rate on a portion of your electricity bill for the next 20-25 years.

Boost your home’s value.
Studies show that homes with solar panels sell 20% faster and for 17% more money than those without.3

Make a difference.
You could prevent more than 17,000 pounds of CO2 emissions a year. That’s like driving 18,500 fewer miles!4

Other factors to consider with a home solar power system.

By going solar at home, not only can you affordably produce your own clean electricity — but you also have the opportunity to sell back to us any excess energy generated. It’s called “net metering,” and you get rewarded for supplying the electricity grid with energy you produce but don’t consume.

Our complete solar solution includes a rooftop solar installation and the opportunity to sell back your system’s excess energy with our Renewable Rewards® Buyback Program.

If you would rather save the energy you haven’t consumed, complete your solar setup by adding a solar battery to your system. Having the backup battery allows you to store excess generated energy, so you can put it to use later. You can either increase the amount of solar energy you use daily or save it in the battery to use as backup power in case the grid goes down.

At Green Mountain, we’ve been on a mission to change the way power is made since 1997. And when we say we’re on a mission, we’re all in: all of the electricity plans we offer come from 100% renewable sources like the wind and the sun.

As the longest-serving renewable energy retailer, and recipient of the Houston Chronicle’s Best of the Best 2021 in the Best Solar Energy Provider category, we’re bringing clean power to homes like yours every day and continuing our steps toward a sustainable future. We can help make your solar journey affordable and sustainable — just the way it should be.

Backup battery

A solar battery lets you store excess energy that’s been generated during the day. If the grid happens to go down, you can use this stored energy instead.

Exclusive rebate

You could save thousands on your home’s installation costs2 with our special solar incentive.

Level 2 charger

During installation, you can opt to set up and connect a level 2 charger for your current or future electric vehicle at NO additional cost, depending on your system size.
