Solar Switch Dallas Program Helps Hundreds Save on Rooftop Solar Installation

Nearly 600 residents in the Dallas area have taken advantage of the 2023 Solar Switch Dallas program, resulting in significant savings on rooftop solar installations. Through the program, participants received personalized recommendations and saved an average of $6,030 on their installations.

In collaboration with the City of Dallas' Whole Home program, the nonprofit organization Solar United Neighbors has initiated a second round of Solar Switch Dallas. The program aims to assist homeowners and small businesses in acquiring rooftop solar and battery storage systems at discounted rates.

Solar Switch utilizes group buying power to ensure participants receive quality systems at competitive prices. Solar installers are thoroughly vetted based on various criteria, including product quality, warranties, financial stability, and customer satisfaction history. Qualified installers then engage in a reverse auction, resulting in competitively priced solar packages for participants.

Carlos Evans, Director of the Office of Environmental Quality and Sustainability, highlighted the importance of the Solar Switch program in simplifying the solar installation process and providing discounted prices to residents.

The combination of the Solar Switch group discount and federal clean energy incentives makes solar energy more accessible. Participants can benefit from the federal solar investment tax credit (ITC), potentially saving 30% on their total system costs.

America Garcia, Texas Program Director for Solar United Neighbors, emphasized the program's mission to make solar installation affordable and straightforward for Dallas residents.

Rooftop solar not only helps homeowners and small businesses save on energy bills but also contributes to a more resilient energy grid, creates local job opportunities, and improves air quality.

Residents are encouraged to register for the Solar Switch program before the auction on March 13th to secure the best discounts. Registration is free and carries no obligation to purchase solar panels. Even after the auction date, residents can still register for the program and benefit from negotiated pricing, as demonstrated by previous participants who saved an average of $6,030 on their installations.

Homeowners and small business owners can visit to register and learn more.
