SOLAR BUYBACK RATE HISTORY

Residential customers in Texas who have solar panels installed can earn solar buyback credits each month when surplus generation is returned to the grid. The amount of the buyback credits vary based on the time the power is returned to the grid, the wholesale price for power, and by load zone

Below are the average buyback rates our Solar Buyback customers received for each load zone. Buyback rates for individual customers will vary from these averages based on the quantity and timing of their excess generation.
