Bring Solar Power Home
Amount of solar energy that hits the earth every year
Bring solar power home with residential solar electric systems! There are many reasons, especially in Texas, for using the power of the sun to provide electric energy for your household needs. End your hate relationship with that monthly utility bill; there are incentives and rebates for solar power available that make going solar one of the soundest investments you can make to support your home, family, community, and our planet. CAM SOLAR would love to help you open your home to the wonders of solar energy; there are great financing options available for residential solar electric systems. Plus, it’s fun to watch your electric meter run backwards while your home increases in value!
Rebates and incentives are available.
Both federal and state level governments now offer rebates for residential solar users. There are also federal tax credits available for solar homeowners. And don’t worry about the details; CAM Solar will take care of all the paperwork for you.
Solar has an excellent Return on Investment (ROI).
Often residential and commercial solar customers will generate more energy than they need for themselves. When this happens, they can feed that surplus energy back into the grid and many energy companies will give you a credit on your utility bill. This process is called net metering, and the savings add up quickly to offset your initial investment.
Build a greener San Antonio.
By incorporating solar energy into your home, you are making an investment in your community and the environment itself. Solar electric is here to stay, and it’s much more sustainable than fossil fuel based energy. Choosing solar actually benefits the earth.
The Benefits of Going Solar
Far from being clunky or eyesores, the solar panels from CAM SOLAR’s innovative manufacturing partners are streamlined and come in various aesthetically pleasing options to create fantastic architectural interest. There’s an art to solar; let CAM SOLAR hold the brush.
CAM SOLAR’s low cost solar panels produce up to 50% more energy than traditional photovoltaic solar panels, increasing efficiency and requiring less roof space. Solar panels come with an inverter, which converts the collected solar energy from Direct Current (DC) to Alternating Current (AC) power, which can be used in your home.
Return on Investment
Whenever you read about solar panels, you’ll hear about your electric meter running backwards. This process is known as ‘net metering.’ What does this mean? Well, demand on the power grid is highest during the middle of the day; coincidentally, that’s when your solar panels are pulling in the most energy from the sun. So when demand on your utility company is high across the grid, you allow them to siphon extra energy produced by your panels to help support that demand. In return, they give you a credit on your utility bill or account. Those credits, combined with what you’re personally saving by using solar power instead of the grid, will make up for your initial investment in residential solar electric systems.
Up On The Roof
Our Portfolio of Installations
Every home is different. And CAM Solar top engineering team designs a custom solution for each and every home. Take a look at a few photos to get an idea of all the different ways solar can be installed on your rooftop, or ground-mounted. There is a story behind each home of quality workmanship, best practices, caring and attentive customer service, and using the right product for the job.
Ground-Mounted Residential Installation. Bulverde, Texas.
Project Description: Design and Installation
The main obstacle of constructing this system was the presence of extreme rock in the array field, as well as along the trench path for the 300 foot conduit run to the service. Challenging for some but not for CAM Solar. Understanding how to deal with difficult terrain, high wind loads or even snow loads, CAM SOLAR brought in the right equipment for the job. The choice of a ballasted ground mount system was ideal and the CAM SOLAR team was able to install this system with ease.
The solar experts at CAM SOLAR designed and installed this 12kW ground mounted system for a residence in the CPS service area. This solar energy system utilized Schuco MPE 230 PS-09 modules and Schletter PVMax racking.
The Schuco panels drove one Fronius IG Plus 11.4kW inverter that was mounted on a customized rack near the main service electrical disconnect. This system incorporated eGauge monitoring. The monitoring allows for the system owners to track the production of their new investment.
Boom Residence. San Antonio, Texas.
Project Description: Design and Installation
CAM SOLAR completed this 12.2kW roof -mounted system for a residence in the CPS service area. The system utilized Schuco MPE 185 MS-05 modules and S-5! PV Kit racking.
The Schuco panels drove one Fronius IG Plus 11.4kW inverter that was chosen for its longevity and multiple power conditioning units. This system incorporated eGauge monitoring. The monitoring not only allows for the system owners to track the production of the solar system, but also allows the owner to track his home energy usage.
This system mounted directly to the double fold galvalume standing seam metal roof using S-5! U clamps as well as the S-5! PV Kit. This created a very low profile aesthetic to minimize the visual impact of the system.
“I wanted to take a moment to thank the whole CAMSolar team – from Tony doing a well-polished sales pitch to Brian and Daniel getting the site surveyed, ditched, framed, installed, and wired. Pam and I have done other “large” home projects over the past 30 years – and this one has been the smoothest.”

“I’m very favorably impressed with every facet of your company [CAM Solar]. If you would derive any benefit from having a letter of endorsement from a residential installation, please let me know.”
Peter F. from San Antonio
“CAM Solar was professional from the very beginning. Sales didn’t push me into buying and I never felt like I was being sold on anything. They answered all my questions and made thing very easy to understand. I had several companies competing for the business and it became apparent during the site surveys that there was a HUGE difference in the professionalism and competency of CAM compared to other companies.”
Ruben D. from San Antonio
