Texas Public Radio‘s daily local call-in program The Source recently featured our Vice President of Corporate Development and Planning Raiford Smith answering questions about our soon-to-launch Rooftop Solar program.
Host David Martin Davies noted the high up front costs for residents and small business customers to own and install their own solar installations as he introduced Smith, who explained how the program will work.
Even with rebates and tax credits, installation of solar systems is out of reach for most residents, and those that have been installed tend to be clustered in middle- to upper-income areas, Smith noted.
The intent of this new program, Smith said, is to expand access to solar in areas that traditionally haven’t been able to take advantage of it.
And thanks for your patience — we’ve heard from many customers already who are interested in signing up for the program. We can’t sign folks up quite yet, but we’re working hard to choose a partner and nail down eligibility details. Stay tuned!
