What is Sunhub
In December 2017, GVEC brought the SunHub Generation Station online, the Co-op’s first ever generation asset and community solar project. The two-megawatt facility, located on Highway 90A between Seguin and Gonzales, was one of only seven distribution-scale solar projects underway as of that time in Texas. The facility is designed to deliver more than 4 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy thanks to its 6,500 solar panels powered by the South Texas sunshine.Members have an opportunity to support this renewable energy project by purchasing solar energy through the SunHub Community Solar program.
How the program works – It’s simple!
The program works like a yearly subscription. It’s completely optional and can be stopped or started at any time.
- Purchase from one to five blocks of solar energy per month. Each block equals 100kWh, so you can buy up to 500kWh per month.
- The Generation and Transmission (G&T) rate for solar energy is reviewed annually. The current SunHub G&T rate is $0.059 cents per kWh ($5.90 per 100 kWh block).
- If you have questions about how many blocks you should purchase, a Customer Service Representative can help determine the best number based on your historical usage.
- The number of blocks purchased and associated cost will appear as a separate line item on your monthly bill for easy monitoring.
- Change the number of blocks or unsubscribe to the program at any time without a penalty fee.

SunHub Program FAQ’s:
Members have the opportunity to purchase local, renewable energy at no cost without having to fund or install a solar panel system on their homes. SunHub has no large upfront investment, no long-term lease or contract, no penalty fees and no long-term commitment. It allows members to lock in the Generation & Transmission (G&T) rate of a portion of their energy usage for up to a year.
The current SunHub Generation & Transmission (G&T) rate is $0.059 cents per kWh ($5.90 per 100 kWh block). Members can purchase from one (100 kWh) to five blocks (500kWh) per month. The Generation and Transmission (G&T) rate for solar energy is reviewed annually.It is important to understand what goes into your monthly electric bill. Your bill has two major components; a Distribution rate which covers the costs to get electricity to your home or business and a G&T rate which accounts for the cost of purchasing wholesale power. Although it happens infrequently, the Distribution rate is subject to change at any time at the discretion of the GVEC Board of Directors. The G&T rate will be reviewed annually under this program.
Once you have selected the number of blocks you are interested in purchasing via the Subscribe to SunHub form or over the phone, a Customer Service Representative will review your request and confirm that number of blocks is a good fit for your historical usage. You can reduce the number of blocks you purchase anytime without penalty.We want to make sure you don’t purchase more than your lowest historical usage because there are no credits for unused energy.
If you have more questions about how many blocks are right for you, call us to speak with a Customer Service Representative at 800.223.4832
. We’re here to help!
The number of solar blocks purchased along with the cost per block will appear as a separate line item on your monthly bill. Program billing will begin to appear on the next bill that is generated after subscribing.
Program space is limited. You can change the number of blocks purchased any time, understanding program space must be available for an increase. You can leave the program at any time without a penalty fee.
While you are helping to reduce your carbon footprint and decrease our dependence on nonrenewable energy sources, there is no federal tax incentive or GVEC member rebate available for SunHub. Any applicable rebates and/or tax incentives would only be for members buying a residential solar system, if available.
