    The Austin Energy Solar Rebate Program – Top 5 Things To Know


    • Energy created from solar panels is energy that electric utilities do not have to create from their own power plants. Installing solar panels on your home helps you lower power bills, save money, benefit the environment, and also helps the utility during “peak demand” periods.
    • A solar power system becomes your primary power source, with additional power seamlessly available from the Austin Energy power grid.
    • Austin, Texas homeowners in the Austin Energy service territory can receive up to $2,500 dollars worth of rebates toward the cost of installing solar panels on a residence. A rebate is available for residential customers in Austin who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on their homes.
    • Leased systems do not qualify for Austin Energy residential solar incentives, and third-party solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) are not allowed in Austin Energy’s service territory.
    • Homeowners must use an approved solar contractor (like Alba Energy of Austin).

    How A Solar Panel System Works In Austin

    Under Austin Energy’s program residential customers are billed for their whole house energy consumption at standard residential rates and then credited at the current Value of Solar Rate ($0.097 per kilowatt-hour), with monthly net excess generation rolled over to the next month, indefinitely.
