@Xtrmwakeboarder I've got some time over this weekend to chat if you want. I remember some pics of your roof and that's the limiting factor. I don't think you will be able to do a full coverage system tbh..but I need the actual address and an arial image to know for sure.@Xtrmwakeboarder I’m flying back from a conference right now, I’ll reply tomorrow. Texas is a unique place in terms of companies/utilities and how the buy backs work.
Do you have space for a ground mount?
In Texas I will steer you away from battery backup for a multitude of reasons…the NG whole home is a good idea, along with a system sized appropriately for your house/NEM.
You are in one of the higher rate areas. There and Georgetown are 2 of the highest in the state.
It makes sense depending on your NEM, which I need to look up. I sold a lot of solar in Texas..second only to hawaii about in terms of deals I personally sold to ppl. It’s all about the NEM. I’ve got someone I can refer you to without the BS.
for what it's worth...my natural gas bill did not change at all during the snow storm...it was always within a dollar each month the entire time we lived there. Shoot me a PM with an address and ill put some data together, and thoughts. You can post what I send you back if you want so people can see it.
For cliff notes: You won't be at 100% coverage (IMO), battery isn't a cost effective method for your area, and lastly a NG generator is the ticket for backup, if you are worried about that I would do propane with a large tank....maintenance on those is very low. Some good opinions in this thread, some really inaccurate ones as well.
