Federal Tax Credit (FTC)

FTC is also known as the investment solar tax credit, that gives you a rebate of 30% on the cost of the installation of a solar energy system in the form of a tax credit.

The tax is available for anyone who installs or upgrades the solar energy system and can be claimed on your annual tax return. If you don’t have enough tax liability to utilize 30% of the tax credit, then the remaining credit will rollover to next year’s tax returns.


Those who choose to finance their Houston Texas solar residential will get the FTC on the complete loan amount. But if homeowners go for a solar lease, they won’t be able to get this incentive.

Solar Rebate Programs in Texas (Local)

Texas doesn’t offer statewide rebates or tax credits, but Texans can utilize different rebate programs and special policies by the local government or the utilities to save a large amount on the cost of solar energy system. Below are just a few of them.

Austin Energy:

If you are an Austin Energy customer, you can get $2,500 as a rebate on installing a solar energy system. Moreover, you’re eligible for the Value of Solar Tariff, which means you can get $0.097 per kWh that your solar energy system produces.

CPS Energy:

As a CPS Energy customer, a rebate of $2,500 can be received for installing a solar energy system. You’re also eligible for an extra $500 if you install locally-sourced solar panels.


Texas Net Metering

There is no statewide net metering policy for Houston Texas solar residential; utilities offer credit for the excess energy your solar energy system produces. This includes CPS Energy, Austin Energy, Pedernales Electric, and many electric providers within Oncor. At night you can utilize these credits instead of buying electricity from the grid.

Utilities in Texas usually offer four types of buyback plans.

Uncapped Credit Plans

There is no cap on the production of solar energy, and homeowners can get credit for all the excess electricity produced by the solar energy system. However, the buyback rate can vary from utility to utility.

Capped Credit Plans

Some utilities put a cap on the amount of electricity that can be sent to the grid. No credit will be given for the energy produced by your solar energy system that exceeds your consumption during that month.

Real-Time Buyback Plans

The excess energy your solar energy system sends to the grid is credited at a real-time market price. This rate may vary with time.

Value of Solar

Instead of the retail rate or the real-time market price, some utilities credit solar energy at the VOS (value of solar) rate.




Renewable Energy System Property Tax Exemption

Other than saving on your electricity bills, the solar energy system increases your home value, but you don’t have to pay the extra tax for the higher home value. This is because of the renewable energy system property tax exemption, so that the homeowners don’t have to pay extra taxes as a result of the increased value of their homes after installing solar energy systems.


Solar Rights Law

Some of the HOAs restrict homeowners from going solar, but Texas has a solar rights law that allows homeowners to install solar energy systems on their properties. Explore our residential solar solutions in Texas and see how we’re also brightening homes in Maryland with sustainable energy.
