Oh btw are you saying these other people actually had their kwh rate increase just because their feeding back into the grid. I understand you will get below market kwh price on feedback gen electricity.Oh ya does Louisiana , Okla, or New Mex laws force utility providers(aka Oncor) to pay different rates???
Yes that is what I am saying. As I stated before TX does not have Net Metering Laws, so electric utilities are not even required to connect you if you want a grid tied system. Many of the COOP's will not even consider it. Those that do can make any policy they want. Only exception is the city of Austin TX.
As you know TX electric is deregulated which keeps prices very low and competitive under the watchful eye of the PUC. For example you can go online and shop for electric rates. Today with say a 2-year contract you can get a rate of around $0.082/Kwh service with unlimited usage. Heck of a deal as I am locked in for 3 years. Rate sin TX have dropped 27% in the last 3 years and expected to drop even more if we get a new POTUS next year.
Likewise the utilities have policies for Grid Tied. Generally speaking the rate is much higher as opposed to standard service. Each one is unique and you have to do your own shopping. Generally speaking with respect to Solar only OnCore who owns the lines and equipment in your area can offer Grid Tied Service. The competitors like Champion are not allowed to offer the service. Only the POCO who owns the generation/transmission/distribution equipment can offer it. So they can do anything they want.
That is why I suggest you do your homework before jumping in.
Also another warning.
Check with your insurance company before doing anything. Many will not cover solar systems, and the ones that will have requirements that must be met like installed by a licensed electrical contractor. So do your homework. Or you may get what you asked for, screwed over. Most insurance companies that will cover a solar system are going to require both mechanical and electrical permits/inspection with stamped documentation from a Professional Engineers to state the roof or structure can handle the load, and the electrical design is safe and compliant with all local and state codes.
