Additional Rebates from your Local Utility
Texas does not offer a statewide solar tax credit or solar rebate program. That said, many local governments and utility companies offer great incentives to homeowners who decide to go solar. Here are some examples:
Residents in Austin, TX can get a rebate that ranges anywhere from $0.50 to $0.80 per Watt (W) of solar power installed in your home. Additionally, you’re eligible for Austin Energy’s Value of Solar Tariff, a program that pays homeowners $0.113 for each and every kilowatt-hour (kWh) your solar panels are generating.
Anyone in Texas who is a CPS Energy customer can receive up to $1.20 per Watt (W) of solar panels installed on your roof.
Homes that are powered by Oncor are eligible for a cash rebate of $538.83 per kilowatt for their solar panel system installation. That comes out to an average of $0.54/W. In addition, since Oncor customers are not eligible for Net Metering, they are eligible to receive a $0.2519/kWh credit for the solar electricity their home generates.
Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative, the City of Sunset Valley and Garland Power
These companies also offer rebates for any homeowners who go solar in their areas.
