Debunking Common Misconceptions: The Truth About Solar Panels in Houston! 

When you look up at the night sky, you see the light from stars that have traveled for years to reach your eyes. However, the stars that sent that light may no longer be in the same position. The same is true for common knowledge in the solar industry in Houston. Many of the concepts that people believe about solar are no longer true.

Solar Liens

One of the most common misconceptions about solar is that lenders put loans on your home when you install solar panels. However, this is no longer the case. Solar lenders now put loans on the panels themselves. This means that if you sell your home, the panels and the loan can be transferred to the new homeowner.

Consumption Replacement

It is common for homeowners to believe that solar panels will not be able to completely eliminate their electric bill. However, this is not always the case. If solar installers correctly calculate a homeowner’s electricity consumption and add enough panels that will produce enough energy to provide a 100% replacement, they will eliminate the homeowner’s electric bill. Many homeowners underestimate the potential of solar panels.

Electricity Bill Elimination

While it is true that solar panels can reduce your energy costs, it is not impossible for them to eliminate electric bills completely if designed and installed correctly to match the energy consumption. The energy needs of each household are unique, and the one-size-fits-all approach does not always apply, but when done correctly, the savings on energy bills can be significant enough to pay for the solar panels in a relatively short amount of time.


A third misconception about solar energy is that solar panels and their warranties are not transferable when you move. This is not true. In fact, most solar loans and the warranties on the panels are transferable, which means that they can be transferred to the new homeowner if you decide to sell your home. This is an important aspect to consider when installing solar panels, especially if you plan to sell your home soon.

When a homeowner sells their home in Houston, any solar panels installed on the property become an asset to the new homeowner. This can be a valuable selling point for the home, as the new homeowner will not only inherit the solar panels, but also the savings on their energy bills. The new homeowner will also benefit from the transferable warranty on the panels, which means that they will be covered for any defects or issues that may arise.

The transferability of the solar loans also enables the new homeowner to take over the loan, which means they can continue to pay the same installment, under the same interest rate and the same loan period, and do not need to worry about the burden of arranging new financing for the solar panels.

Last Word

In conclusion, it is important to remember that conventional wisdom should not be trusted when it comes to solar energy. Instead, you should get updated solar proposals and have a 30-minute virtual meeting to get all the current facts. By doing so, you will be able to make an informed decision about whether solar is right for you, and you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits that solar energy has to offer.
