Local Utility Solar Rebates & Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)

The Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC) is a federal incentive program that allows homeowners to receive a tax credit for the purchase of solar energy systems. This tax credit helps to reduce the cost of installing solar panels and other renewable energy equipment. The ITC works by allowing homeowners to deduct 30 percent of the cost of their solar system from their federal taxes. This incentive can be used for both residential and commercial installations, making it an attractive option for those looking to save on energy costs while making a positive impact on the environment. 

Solar rebates are a great way to save money on energy costs. Local utilities such as AEP and Oncor offer solar rebates to customers who want to go solar. These solar rebates can help offset the cost of installing a solar system, making it more affordable for homeowners and businesses.

What is Net Metering and How Does it Work?

Net metering is an important solar policy and incentive that is used to help residential solar customers save on energy costs. It allows customers to get credit for the excess electricity their solar system produces, which can be used to offset the cost of electricity they purchase from their utility provider. This helps reduce the amount of money customers have to pay for energy and makes it easier for them to make a return on their solar investment.

In Texas, several Retail Energy Providers (REP) such as Green Mountain Energy, Pulse Power, and Energy Texas offer different net metering programs for their customers. By understanding the different net metering programs offered by Texas REPs, customers can take advantage of all the benefits associated with it and help save on energy costs.

Going solar is an investment that can significantly increase the value of your home. Installing solar panels can not only help you save on energy costs, but it can also be a great way to boost the resale value of your property.
