CPS Energy is a National Leader in Solar Power

The Shining Cities 2020: The Top U.S. Cities for Solar Energy ranked CPS Energy 2nd nationally among municipally owned utilities for solar power.

CPS Energy has supported the San Antonio Solar Power Community by offering impressive rebates, with bonuses for purchasing locally produced solar equipment. These rebates for San Antonio make solar a very affordable option.

Residential CPS customers can now receive up to $2,500 per install, with an additional $500 if they use local solar panels.  There is a decrease in this rebate of 75% if the customer uses a non-local installer.

San Antonio Ranks 5th in U.S. for Solar Energy Capacity

The annual report Shining Cities 2020: The Top U.S. Cities for Solar Energy by Environment Texas Research & Policy Center, noted San Antonio had moved up to 5th place in the U.S. in solar capacity.  San Antonio also maintained its 1st place spot in Texas for solar within city limits.

“San Antonio’s growth in solar energy capacity is a clear demonstration that CPS Energy and our community are moving in the right direction to ensure a sustainable, resilient future. Over the long run, the move toward solar is both environmentally and economically sound,” said Mayor Ron Nirenberg.

“The move in our rankings to 5th in the nation for solar capacity is a testament to the focused and deliberate work CPS Energy is doing along our Flexible Path to add more renewables to our diversified generation portfolio,” said Paula Gold-Williams, President & CEO of CPS Energy. “We think globally and act locally, and this mindset is reflected in our work to add more renewables and new offerings to our customers.

5 Star ReviewAn excellent value with excellent customer service Tim Cammer, Jonathan D’Antonio, and the installation crew went above and beyond what was necessary to give us an excellent product at an exceptional value, with excellent customer service. The product is already paying for itself with no net loss to our family’s budget. They were willing to travel an exceptionally long distance to our home in Yoakum with no complaints. Jonathan D’Antonio completed difficult negotiations with the City of Yoakum so that the city fees were minimal. The installation crews installed the panels safely with no hiccups, and Jonathan D’Antonio (the operations manager) personally inspected the installation before we turned it on. I highly recommend this company.

5 Star ReviewGreat We met with the of the representatives and decided to move forward with installing the solar system. Due to Covid-19 it took a good while before the install was done. I can honestly say me and my husband are happy we decided to go solar. The technicians were very nice, very fast and worked very efficiently to get the work done. We are looking forward to saving money on the cost of our electricity bill. Thank you for you services American Sentry Solar. Mr. and Mrs. Richo

5 Star ReviewEasy and Professional We had been planning to get solar for years but never found a company we felt comfortable with until American Sentry Solar. They answered all our questions and made us feel comfortable. They made it easy for us, and when the time came (mid-COVID) they were fast, safe and professional. We highly recommend them.

5 Star ReviewGreat service and excellent communication

This company was referred to me by some coworkers who had solar panels installed. We set up the appointment and Dustin explained every little detail. The company was easy to deal with and took care of setting everything up including the rebate paperwork. They made it simple and Stress free. Great company and I would highly recommend them!

5 Star ReviewGreat start

Installation of panels was quick, clean, and professional. They anticipated what townships inspector would require with time saving pictures. I am amazed at how efficient solar panels are. Totally pleased with system so far. Enphase app is excellent and easy way to visualize benefits of this solar system. Waiting for electric company to install new meter so we can realize energy credits.

5 Star ReviewGreat company, kept informed throughout process

It was a wonderful experience to work with American sentry Solar. That being said I told them that I wanted to own my system and reap all the benefits of owning it and that included rebates and that I can upgrade to add more down the road (I got 14 panels 4.62K). The guys that came out to do the installation were very nice and friendly, in fact I surprised them when I showed up on the roof to see them working on installing the racking and solar panels. After install and inspection was done the Corona virus kept me from getting my new Net meter from BGE as no one was allowed to go into houses for now (my meter is in my basement) but American Sentry Solar sent out a tech to put the system on line in a way that they could produce power but no to allow net metering yet and use only as needed that I used during the day. Then they sent out my rebate paperwork fully filled out and told me were to sign and even the envelope to put it in to mail it out. They kept me up to date with install and delays with BGE, until BGE postponed indefinitely for now. I would rate them 11 out of 10 stars thanks again now just waiting on BGE for net meter to be installed. Thank you for a wonderful experience Brian Minnerly

5 Star Solar ReviewEXCELLENT I am extremely happy I chose American Sentry Solar. A neighbor recommended them and after meeting with Will, I honestly never met with any other company. I had been told the panels would be installed and operational by the end of April. The estimated date was more than a month AFTER they were installed. Having the panels installed and operational during quarantine certainly helped my pocketbook!

5 Star Solar ReviewSmooth process, couldn’t be nicer

We had worked with American Sentry Solar’s parent company, American Design and Build, to replace windows at our previous residence and had a good overall experience with that process. So naturally when we moved to Bel Air, MD and were considering a solar project, we reached out to American Sentry. We were not disappointed. The initial consultation was very informative and honestly very low key, considering the size of the project. While there was a sense conveyed that sooner would be better to get the project underway, it was far from a high pressure sales call. The installation went as planned too. The crews showed up at our home at around 8:30am, and before lunchtime they had finished, cleaned up and headed out. It was a very streamlined process. But they also took time when they were finished to discuss the work they’d done with my wife and me, answered questions that we had and discussed next steps before they left. True professionals, and extremely nice people. Throughout the entire process, American Sentry Solar was available to answer our questions and guide us through the process, and they took additional steps to insure our inspection went as planned (though understandably slower than usual) even with Maryland’s COVID-19 protocols going into effect at the same time. Once again we are very pleased with our experience with American Sentry Solar and American Design and Build. The next time we have a major home improvement project, you can be sure we’ll be contacting them again.

5 Star Solar ReviewInstallation review

I like to commend all the employees that were at our house over January and February from Mr. Hopp to the structural engineer that inspected our roof and attic. I worked in the union electrical constrution trade for over 30 years and was impressed with the electricians that were at our home and also the roofers that did the exterior install. I would certainly recommend your company to any one who might need info. Thank you very much. Frank Clymer

5 Star Solar ReviewGreat experience

I highly recommend American Sentry Solar! What a bunch of great guys who are professional, friendly, and accurate. From beginning to end, this was a great experience.

5 Star Solar ReviewGreat experience, professional and made in Texas!!

From Mike, my sales person, to the installers and everyone I talked with on the phone they were all honest and upfront with me about the product, process and installation. They handled everything including my HOA and CPS electric. Installers even finished about an hour early – less than 3 hrs total and totally cleaned up after themselves – awesome, friendly team. I loved that the panels are actually made in Texas – I like supporting my Texas people! I have been very satisfied with the 16 panel solar performance. I moved in my house 6 months ago and my highest electric bill was Nov at $47.33/415 KwH (just me here) – this month (Feb) it was 0 KwH used-solar produced 443KwH! The panels look great on the roof too. I totally recommend American Sentry for your Solar system (ha ha – ‘solar system’) – don’t hesitate!

So far so good5 Star Solar Review

As of the writing of this review, the installation has been completed. All that’s left is the final inspection. So far there were no hassles and every step of the process was thoroughly explained and then completed in a timely manner. Everything was so easy!! They provided all the information my HOA requested. The customer service is remarkable. I would recommend this company to anybody!!

American Sentry Solar was amazing to work with5 Star Solar Review

They did all the leg and paperwork for us. Took care of all the permits and working with my electric company. They were always quick to respond to any question and great to work around my schedule. If I had to go back and do it over again I would still chose American Sentry Solar.

I waited to write this review5 Star Solar Review

I waited to write this review because I was sure that something would go wrong. I thought that there would be a hassle between pulling permits, actually doing the work, getting an inspection, getting rebates, and then finally receiving our first energy bill. I must say I was wrong. Everything was so easy!! I didn’t have to deal with my HOA (the company did it all for me), setting up an appointment for installation was easy, we passed our inspection, and our savings on our energy bill were immediate. We went from $150 to $50 energy bill for the last two months (and it was pretty cloudy and rainy those months). I’m still waiting for a hiccup in the whole process and am amazed by how smooth it went! I would recommend this company to anybody!

An excellent experience with an excellent company5 Star Solar Review

American entry Solar is an excellent company to work with and provides excellent service and an excellent product. Everyone was polite, friendly, and professional. The sales staff was knowledgeable and not pushy. Installation was quick, taking two days. Installation would have only been one day had weather not been a factor. And they cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day, leaving nothing laying around in my yard after either day. Had it not been for the fact that I could see the progress on top of my roof, I wouldn’t had known they had been there when I got home from work. I was kept informed of what was going on, every step of the way and they handled all of the paper work for permits, HOA, and rebates. The panels themselves have been a great investment outperforming our expectations. I couldn’t be happier with the service, the people, or the product.
5 Star Solar ReviewVery good company to deal with. The installers were polite and very professional. They had solar installed in no time. I would recommend this company the inspector that came out said that there was never a problem with this company.
