A hail storm hit in 2013 and our roof was damaged but the Solar panels were unaffected.

Our insurance company paid to remove, store and replace the panels after the roof was replaced. We added 5 panels at that time.

Host Comments

We initially installed 16 solar panels. A hail storm hit in 2013 and our roof was damaged but the Solar panels were unaffected. Our insurance company paid to remove, store and replace the panels after the roof was replaced. We added 5 panels at that time. I have to admit that Tri-County Electric was not real supportive when we first added the panels. Luckily our installer, Jim Duncan, from North Texas Renewable Energy, knew how to navigate through the red tape. The bottom line is that Tri-County Electric charges a fee of $12 a month to have solar. There was also a charge of $150 to replace the meter with one that can run backwards. We have not yet had a month where we produced more electricity than we used but we have come close.
