Kosmos Solar proudly serves the entire Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, including the city of Carrollton, TX, which spans Dallas, Denton, and Collin counties. Like all sunny North Texas cities, Carrollton is an excellent location to make the most of rooftop-mounted solar panels. Areas with prolonged hours of sunlight and few overcast days get the greatest value from solar panel arrays, so any home or office in DFW would benefit from switching to solar power and saving money on their electric bills.
Carrollton’s neighborhoods are a mix of older and newer construction, so you’ll see roofs of all shapes and slopes when you pass through. Some homeowners believe that having a flat or low-sloping roof disqualifies them from the benefits of solar panels. Not so! Kosmos Solar has a team of dedicated experts who know how to get solar panel arrays sized and configured just right for 99% of the roofs we see. If your roof truly cannot support a solar panel system, we’re happy to offer a ground-mounted array for your yard.
Solar Power in Carrollton, TX
When it comes to solar power tax incentives, Texas is somewhat behind the curve, at least at the state level. Homeowners can still take advantage of the federal solar tax credit to deduct 30% of their solar panel installation from their taxes. This will decrease to 26% in 2020, to 22% in 2021, and end altogether for residential customers in 2022. Businesses will still be able to deduct 10% of the cost of their solar panel installations in perpetuity.
Texas does, however, have a solar access law that prevents HOAs from forbidding solar panel installation if their association has more than 50 residences. Our state believes everyone should have the freedom to choose solar energy if they wish, and our team at Kosmos agrees! If you ever have questions about solar tax benefits or solar power laws, our friendly experts are just a phone call away.
Carrollton is a city of about 137,000 citizens. It was originally a part of the Peter’s Colony land grant and was settled by Jared Ford in 1842. The early community depended on agriculture to earn money, but eventually expanded into industrial shipping when the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad came to 1881. With this new mode of transportation came a boom in population and commerce. Carrollton was incorporated as a city in 1913.
Today, Carrollton is an award-winning suburb of Dallas. Money Magazine ranked Carrollton as the 19th best place to live in the US in 2006, and the 15th best among small cities in 2008. It is the headquarters for several North American corporations, and its top employers include AmerisourceBergen, Halliburton, and Thomson Reuters.
Weather in Carrollton
As a North Texas city, Carrollton enjoys a mostly warm and sunny climate. Depending on the season, the region averages 10 – 14 hours of sunlight every day. Cloudy weather is seldom a worry; there are more than enough sunny days to keep homes and businesses running on the energy generated by solar panels. Carrollton homeowners who have a rooftop solar array installed could see significant savings on their energy bills, enjoy federal tax incentives, and increase their home’s resale value.
