Got Panels? Get Paid

By going solar with Rhythm Energy, you could see much smaller bills.

Here’s an example of someone who has Oncor as a utility provider, and they have a monthly usage of 300 kWh on Rhythm Energy’s Rooftop Solar Buyback Plan. This demonstrates how the current charges on their bill will be summed up.

The total amount shown is excluding taxes and other fees which will be based on factors like where they live.

Have Solar Buyback Questions?

We've got answers.

A solar buyback plan gives homeowners a way to make money on the excess power being generated from their solar panels. In other words, you can be compensated with bill credits for the excess solar power generated from your solar system.

Texas customers living in a competitive electricity market, with residential rooftop solar arrays less than 20 kW in capacity, are eligible for this solar buyback plan. Interested in learning more? Contact our Texas based Customer Care team at 1-888-987-0432.

This 100% renewable energy plan will be a fixed term for 12 months. This locks in your Energy Charge rate for the duration of your contract. There is an $8.95 monthly base charge for this plan. Transmission distribution charges and taxes are all passed through.

Rhythm will look at how much electricity the customer used (electricity for which the customer pays Rhythm), and then deduct the credit for surplus generation (electricity for which Rhythm credits the customer) up to the monthly consumption in that billing period. Rooftop Solar Buyback plan credits have no cash value and can only be redeemed for Rhythm bill credits in that billing cycle. Solar Buyback Credits can only be used for Energy Charges for the meter that they were received on.

Solar power, also called solar energy, is power that comes from our biggest star, the sun. It's one of our favorite green energy sources because it's clean, renewable, and oftentimes local. To learn more about the benefits of solar energy, visit our blog: What are the Advantages of Solar Energy.

No, any early termination fee associated with leaving your previous provider is not covered for customers signing up for our Rooftop Solar Buyback Plan. However, if you have a new solar installation at your home, your solar installer usually reimburses any early termination fees associated with changing your energy provider. So we always recommend checking with them.

No, but you can earn reward bill credits if you refer a friend to a non-Solar Buyback Plan.​
