Why go Solar in texas

Solar Energy in the Lone Star State

Texas is ranked 2nd in solar power by the SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association) and homeowners are quickly going solar. As the state’s economy grows, so does solar.

What solar incentives are available in Texas?

In addition to drastically reducing or eliminating your electric bills and contributing to a cleaner environment you can also benefit from local and federal solar energy incentives.

Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)

The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a federal tax credit for qualified customers who purchase solar energy systems for residential properties. The credit is worth 26% of the total cost of the system and is applied to the homeowners income tax. In 2023 the ITC will be increase to 30% until 2032.  

Texas does not have a statewide net metering policy, but seven retail electric providers, as well as many municipal utilities and electric cooperatives offer some form of a solar buyback program.
The incentives for going solar in Texas vary significantly between the state’s different utility companies. For example, Austin Energy offers a $2,500 residential rebate and CPS Energy (City of San Antonio) offers a $2,500 residential rebate. Other local utilities may offer their own incentives for qualified customers.
Property Tax Exemption

Unlike other home improvements like new kitchens, additions or pools, Texas homeowners never have to worry about the government adding  property taxes to their home when they install a solar energy and backup battery system.
