Installing Solar Panels in Bastrop – How it works


  • Energy created from solar panels is energy that electric utilities do not have to create from their own power plants. Installing solar panels on your home helps you lower power bills, save money, benefit the environment, and also helps the utility during “peak demand” periods.
  • A solar panel installation becomes your primary power source, with additional power seamlessly available from the Bluebonnet Electric power grid.
  • Bastrop, Texas homeowners in the Bluebonnet service territory can receive a credit for the value for their solar electricity that is returned to the grid. As of December 2019, the Renewable Energy Rate is $0.064544 per kWh. For example, if your solar PV system sends 500 kWh of electricity into the grid your credit would equal $32.27.
  • Homeowners must use an approved solar contractor (like Wells Solar).
