The Alamo City is ranked No. 7 in the United States and No. 1 in Texas for solar energy capacity, according to a new report by Environment Texas Research and Policy Center.

The rankings come on the heels of the city’s solar energy capacity growing in 2018 to 186.9 megawatts from 161 megawatts in 2017, CPS Energy said in a news release.

The achievement was celebrated Tuesday at Palm Heights Community Center, which was one of the City of San Antonio’s facilities that is participating in CPS Energy’s Solar Host program.

CPS Energy announced an additional $15 million for its solar rebate program in December 2018. Since the announcement, the company has continued to see growth in commercial and residential customers applying to participate.

“Each year we harness more and more of the enormous solar energy potential in Texas,” said Emma Pabst, clean energy associate of Environment Texas. “We still have a long way to go, but leaders like San Antonio and CPS Energy are taking the steps necessary to power more homes, schools and businesses with clean energy from the sun.” 

Utility officials said the increase speaks to interest in solar energy by CPS Energy customers.

Did you see that power grid?

Chances are you’ve daydreamed in the passenger’s seat while being driven and didn’t notice all the power distribution grid power lines.

The power grid starts in places where electricity is generated. Electricity once was made only at central power stations, which usually ran on fossil fuels.

Today the technology has improved more, and cleaner options for energy generation are available.

Distributed energy resources, such as rooftop solar panel systems, can be cheaper because they generate electricity closer to home.

That means fewer long power-transmission lines and other expensive grid infrastructure required for centralized distribution.

Having a rooftop solar panel system installed also means you are connecting your own generated electricity back to the grid.

Here in the state of Texas, we have our own power grid, the Texas Interconnection, managed by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). The Texas energy market is in favor of cleaner energy.

San Antonio has a goal to become carbon neutral by 2050.

This is why at South Texas Solar Systems Inc. we stay up to date with the innovative technology in our rooftop solar panel systems, ground mount systems, and inverters.

We’ve been providing our clients with the best customer service since 2007.

Rooftop solar panel systems are in demand to help customers save money on electric bills or help better our climate.

At South Texas Solar Systems, we help customers go solar with a zero upfront cost and without paying for the first three months.

The next time you are in the passenger’s seat daydreaming, you may instead notice the rooftop solar panel systems already generating their own electricity.

Local Solar Power in Texas

The solar industry influences our local communities and local businesses to join the solar movement and learn how we can create a better, affordable lifestyle.

San Antonio is home base to Mission Solar Energy, a solar panel manufacturer.

They are currently the longest running crystalline solar panel manufacturer in the United States.

Mission Solar Energy is a 320,000 sqft. Facility sitting on 86 acres.

And while our sun is hard at work converting its sunlight to electricity through a solar panel system; inside Mission Solar is where the hard work of 165 employees is taking place.

Mission Solar’s parent company is OCI Company Ltd. Korea. OCI is the third largest polysilicon mining company in the world.

Mission Solar is the only entity that makes solar modules in the OCI Family of Companies. Of the US Solar Panel makers that were in business during the Section 201 petitions, Mission Solar Director of Commercial Operations, Paul Mutchler said, “Ironically, we are the only ones left, but we have new [entities] coming on, so we still have to keep our pencils sharp.”

As leaders in the solar panel manufacturing industry, Mission Solar has been South Texas Solar Systems manufacturer since 2016.

Plant Manager, Frank Pham said, “Renewable energy has now evolved into grid parity.” Which means it is equivalent to the same cost as it is to burn coal or a coal generation power plant. Making the switch to solar power is a positive investment to your present and future.

Engineers are all about the future and in the west coast they are designing integrated systems. Pham added, “That’s what engineers are doing in the west coast and that’s what we are developing and that can be done for both Bifacial and monofacial [modules] on residential rooftop.”

The overall savings from a solar panel system are why homeowners and businesses have adopted a rooftop solar panel system or ground mount.
