The exact cost of a TX solar energy installation depends on your requirements, providers and location. However, there are a number of programs in the state to help offset the costs of solar installation. For residential and commercial users, there is a federal tax credit on the cost of the system. The credit is 30% on qualifying installations completed in 2019, 26% for those completed in 2020 and 20% for those completed in 2021. The sooner you act, the more you can save!*

Many localities offer additional financial incentives. For example, some Austin Energy customers who go solar may qualify for a rebate worth up to $2,500 for approved solar panel systems at Austin residences.

Homeowners can significantly reduce their utility expenses with an investment in solar. Texas residents purchasing new homes should ensure that their homes are solar-ready. This ensures they will have the opportunity to use solar panels without worrying about trees or neighboring homes limiting solar system placement.
