GREEN POWER 4 TEXAS is a Texas energy procurement & full-service Texas energy management consulting firm focused on sustainability.

In 2011, after a decade of consulting, we expanded from teaching to doing, both as a distributor-dealer & as an insured general contractor, engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) firm, solar installers near Houston, Texas 77002, turnkey installers of solar, wind turbine, & atmospheric water generation systems, & much more (e.g., high efficiency toilets, LEDs, solar attic fans … essentially every green building best practice or green building strategy that occupants, developers, investors, owners, & executives are seeking.

Our unique approach: Sprint. Crawl. Walk. Jog. Run. Leap frog. Inspire.

GREEN POWER 4 TEXAS simplifies onsite solar & wind generation procurement decisions by:

  • Upfront: filtering the 6,800 global solar manufacturers & 250+ wind turbine manufacturers to only those offering the least risk & most bankability, power, efficiency, support & value through the lenses of profit (first costs & life-cycle costs), people, & planet; &

  • Ongoing: monitoring & anticipating supply, demand, pricing, technology, company, industry, regulatory & labor trends & surprises. For example, which turbine manufacturers have experienced few or no catastrophic failures globally?

In other words, our business model relies on:

  • systems thinking & business-minded design

  • conservation & energy efficiency evaluation prior to system design to increase payback of investment

  • direct-to-manufacturer pricing

  • no inventory

  • well-trained external installers

  • personal involvement, &

  • when we function as installers, direct-to-owner contracting, with the fewest layers of subcontractor markup.

NOTE: Several Texas solar PV installations in 2011 cost taxpayers $9-$14 per installed watt, when the fair market price was really less than $5/installed watt before incentives, due to too many middlemen marking up others’ services.

NOTE: Prices refresh every 3-4 weeks because of solar’s “race to the bottom” & the fact that 80 percent of the world’s solar panel manufacturing capacity was unsold in 2011. But, beware dumping of inferior product—even solar panels that are 3rd party certified, as some panels are missing a vital UV inhibitor, causing panels to yellow or brown out and stop performing after just six months.

Our results: minimal overhead costs, & top flexibility, product quality, customer service & return on investment. In fact, our solar panel prices have been 15% below those of very large distributors, whose inventory is constantly becoming obsolete in a fast-moving technology industry.

Solar & Wind Facts:
  • The first solar cell was patented in the late 1800’s.

  • Wind turbines have been used to pump water for hundreds of years.

  • Texas is the #1 state with wind generation & potential solar generation.

  • In 2009 & 2010, solar panel prices declined 20-25% each year. In 2011, solar panel prices dropped 40%.

  • In 2011, only 1/5th of the world’s solar PV manufacturing capacity was sold.

  • 30% Federal Tax Credits for the installation of onsite solar PV & wind turbine systems are set to expire 12/31/2013 (residential) & 12/31/2016 (commercial). So, the longer you wait, the more you may save.

  • Texas’ electricity grid suffered nine emergency events (brownouts) in 2011, having underestimated demand by 3,000 megawatts during the historic drought & heat wave.

  • Onsite green power generation boosts a building’s ENERGY STAR score, & avoids the 60%+ loss during long-distance electricity transmission & distribution.
