Texas Solar Incentives – Great Options for Property Owners

texas solar

So, what are Texas’ solar incentives? You might be familiar with the term “carrot and stick.” If you’re not, it’s a metaphor for changing a person’s or population’s behavior. You can offer a reward (the carrot) if someone does what you want them to do or dole out punishment (the stick) if they refuse to act accordingly. 

When it comes to solar energy implementation, federal and state governments have both opted for the “carrot” method. Here are some of the benefits you’ll receive if you use solar energy.  

State and Federal Incentives

As of 2022, you can receive a federal tax credit of 26% based on the value of your solar array installation. This benefit applies to residential and commercial solar installation; this begs the question: does Texas have a state-specific solar power rebate? The answer is no. But, there are a few other incentives available to you in the Lone Star State. 

Many local governments and utility companies offer rebate programs and solar power installation incentives. If you’re interested in solar power in Houston, you’ll be glad to know that multiple utility companies offer net metering. Net metering allows you to “bank” energy collected by your solar panels, which is deducted from the energy you’re charged for on your utility bill.

Texas Solar Incentives – Environmental Perks

Now that we’ve covered some Texas solar incentives, let’s go over some of its environmental benefits. Solar energy is preferable to conservationists because it’s a renewable energy resource that doesn’t emit greenhouse gases. It circumvents the drilling and manufacturing processes needed to obtain coal, oil, and natural gas from the ground. 

Reducing fossil fuel emissions is good for the planet and increases air quality. According to a United Nations article, poor outdoor air quality increases “the risk of stroke, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic and acute respiratory diseases, including asthma.” Doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint can have positive effects on your health and the well-being of others.
