GOING SOLAR IN GP&L
If you get your electricity from Garland Power & Light and are considering solar panels for your home or business, then we’ve got all your information right here.
We’ve installed a lot of solar in the GP&L territory over the years. Here’s what you need to know:
- GP&L doesn’t have a solar rebate anymore. 2017 was the last year of their rebate program.
- Systems sizes are capped at 10,000 Watts (10kW).
- They do not formally offer net metering, but they’re currently only reading meters once a month and charging for the difference between meter reads.
- Any excess generation in a given billing period is credited to the customer’s bill on a 1:1 ratio at the full retail electricity rate at that time. The credit will cover any and all City of Garland monthly services (water/sewer/trash).
- They enforce the 2017 National Electric Code and require all the expected documentation for interconnection.
- Their process is smooth and their staff is incredibly easy to work with.
