Switching to a solar system in San Antonio

The ability to change your home to consume solar energy is one of the most significant benefits that exist today for the American people, given the countless benefits that bring to us extracting the power from nature instead of using the current energy.

These benefits are not only about saving money (although it is one of the most attractive if we want to be realistic), but there are also more profound benefits such as the advantage of knowing that you are contaminating much less, and being able to feel emotionally satisfied that you are doing your part for the environment.

Nowadays it is very easy to make the switch to solar in San Antonio, and more and more people are doing it because there is a variety of companies that can help you facilitate the process, as well as provide you with available incentives that promote you to make the initial expenditure less strong.

There is also excellent access to information through Texas television, radio, social networks and the internet in general, which allows us to make more detailed assessments to convince us that solar systems are the best for our properties in San Antonio.

Columbia Realty and South Texas Solar Systems Inc. has complete done of San Antonio’s largest grid tied arrays. In 2018, Columbia has transformed dead space into a live solar rooftop that continuously back feeds solar energy.

The 3 phases of PV, amounting to 267.66 kW, began in the year of 2015 to take advantage of utility rebates, with estimated savings of approximately $80,000 per phase.

Each phase consisted of different panels because of the developing technology in Solar. Phase I of 66 kW consisted of Axitec 300w panels. Phase 2 has 81.07kW with Suniva 335W panels.

Phase III involved San Antonio’s local solar manufacturer, Mission Solar Energy, with the biggest phase of 120.7 kWwith mission 355W solar panels. Rarely seen, Columbia has dedicated space for a Solar Edge inverter room, which transforms all direct current into alternate current.

The Solar Edge inverters and yearly solar additions show the drastic improvements of production after each phase. Phase I started with nearly 10MWh’s of monthly production and is now producing nearly 40MWh’s monthly after the completion of Phase III.

The production now brings bills down to about $200 for one of San Antonio’s hottest month, July! Columbia has nearly achieved a zero carbon footprint with this large scale project. Columbia has enjoyed this project and savings so much, they are continuing another solar project at their building across the street, as of now there is an 81kW solar system!

More phases coming soon!
