HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the summer solstice, the day of the year with the most daylight, Reliant Energy launched Reliant Solar Solutions, a program that combines flexible leasing options with unique solar electricity plans to bring the benefits of residential solar power to Texas homeowners.
§ Reliant e-Sense™ Sell-Back Plan - uses data provided by the customer’s smart meter to offer on-peak and off-peak pricing. The plan has a single peak pricing period from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., daily, which coincides with the time when solar panels produce the most electricity. All other times are off-peak. The sell-back price is the same as the energy charge for the first 500 kWh returned to the grid. Reliant will pay 5 cents per kWh for any additional electricity produced by the customer.
§ Reliant Sell-Back Plan - provides price security for 12 months plus Reliant purchases any surplus electricity the customer produces. Reliant provides a bill credit for the first 500 kWh of excess electricity that the customer generates at the full retail energy charge and pays 5 cents per kWh for any additional electricity that is returned to the grid.
