Texas is one of the best states in America to use solar panels. Aside from Texas’s abundant sunshine, it’s now home to many rebates for homeowners. Businesses can also install and utilize solar power and batteries.
These incentives can not only help with the cost of purchasing and installing solar energy systems. It can also save you significant amounts of money on your electric bills each month.
To find these programs, you may have to do a little digging. Texas doesn’t have a formal state tax credit for solar energy. However, many utility companies and local government agencies do provide rebates and incentives to those who use solar panels.
For example, residents of Austin that use Austin Energy can receive a rebate of $2,500. Just for taking a course and purchasing qualifying solar panels. The City of San Marcos, on the other hand, offers up to $1.00 per watt up to $2,500 for families and $5,000 for commercial operations.

The value of these incentives can change or drop quickly. Especially as more families and businesses begin to use solar panels. It’s in your best interest to invest as soon as possible.
Many utility companies have programs that provide credits to solar panel users. Especially when their system generates extra electricity.
These credits offset periods of time when the solar panels cannot meet your household’s needs. Specifically nighttime or cloudy days.
