Texas is one of the best states for going solar due to its large amount of sunshine, low solar costs, and property tax exemptions for homeowners. You can use the federal solar tax credit and other incentives to save thousands of dollars when you go solar in Texas.
Here are some 5 star reviews from our customers on Google.
The entire solar contract and install experience was great! Working with Matt on the sales team, he went above and beyond to support any issues I had and working with us to find the best financing option for my wife and I. He also explained the hardware and equipment that was going to be used and provided brochures for everything! He wasn't push, was very fun to talk to, not a pressuring sales person, and had some great "dad jokes". Their formal proposal had milestones with dates and activities that were clear and helped us understand all of the milestones of the project. Megan on the project management team always kept us up to date on changes to the permitting, the status of project milestones, and city approvals of the project. Jamie did a great job of letting us know the who, what, when, where of the install. He was present the first day of the install and attended the post install inspection with the local city official. The install team did a great job! The panels are square to the roof, they were all polite, easy to work with, and very helpful when answering questions. They did a pretty good job of picking up any pieces of wire or scrap, they all wore their appropriate PPE, and they were extremely fast! The install was initially quoted at 2 days and they were a little quicker than that. Again, I highly recommend Astrawatt for any solar installs! The people, the service, and the equipment are all top of the line!

Very impressed with the team that put up my residential solar panels, from sales to installation. Rhody in sales had to put in extra time working with the historical preservation office, (I basically did nothing) and he got it figured out. Justin and install team were professional and very neat. Lucky you, Astrawatt, to have such amazing employees!

Astrawatt Solar just finished installing our panels last week and we couldn't be more excited! Everything has been super easy, clear, and friendly from the first contact, all the way through installation. They were always very prompt and understanding with any questions or concerns that we may have had. I have already recommended them to friends and family.

Seldom have I experienced such professional service than I've had with Astrawatt Solar. Astrawatt did a great job installing my panels and quickly responded and resolved the few minor issues I experienced. The salesman, Bryan, was exceptional, very responsive, highly knowledgeable and always willing to thoroughly answer my questions and take care of my concerns. He frequently would record screencasts of himself answering questions and explaining things in detail, then he would email them to me. The financing options were especially confusing but Bryan recorded a video explaining them all in detail which I then shared with my husband. This was very helpful and a great business/selling practice. I felt that he was honest and up-front and didn't try to sell me a bigger system than I needed, unlike other solar companies I talked to. Some companies just tried to cram as many panels on my roof as they could which would have generated more power than I needed thus just causing me extra expense and to give all my extra power away to the utility company--ya, they would pay me a mere .02 cents a Kw, but that doesn't come close to covering the cost of the extra panels. Astrawatt calculated the number of panels I would need to maximize my investment and meet my energy needs based off of my past usage; not so many that I would generate more power than I needed, and not so few that I would be pulling from the grid more than I should. I appreciate them looking out for my interests and doing what was best for me. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to add solar to their homes.

Texas Solar Incentives and Tax Credits
Federal Solar Tax Credit
The Investment Tax Credit (ITC), also called the federal solar tax credit, helps you reduce the cost of your solar energy system. You can deduct 30% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal income taxes. There is no cap on the value of your tax credit and it applies to both residential and commercial systems.
The federal solar tax credit was recently increased to 30% and its timeline has been extended. If you install a solar PV system between now and 2032 you will receive a 30% tax credit. If you’ve already installed your solar system in 2022, your tax credit has been increased from 26% to 30% and you can take advantage of the increased tax savings.
The federal solar tax credit helps Texas homeowners save thousands of dollars in upfront costs, in addition to many solar incentives and rebates for the state of Texas.
Net Metering in Texas
Net Metering is when your utility company monitors how much energy your home’s solar system produces and how much energy you consume. If your home’s solar system generates a surplus of energy, you will receive a credit from your utility company for that surplus energy.
There is no statewide net metering law in Texas, but many major utility companies will pay full retail price for your credits.
If you live in major metropolitan areas like Houston or Dallas, you can find municipal utility companies or Retail Electric Providers (REP) like Green Mountain who will give you full retail credits for your surplus energy.
Texas Solar Rights Law
Texas has a solar rights law which blocks Homeowners Associations (HOAs) from banning solar energy systems. HOAs in Texas can prohibit solar installations in extreme circumstances, but you as a homeowner will most likely not have issues with your HOA for when you decide to go solar.
Texas Property Tax Exemptions for Solar Homeowners
Installing solar panels to your home will increase your home’s value by several thousand dollars. In Texas, installing solar panels will increase the value of your home by about 70% of the cost of your solar panel system. This is due to the substantial energy savings you will receive over the life of your solar power system.
The Texas legislature has created a property tax exemption to encourage homeowners to go solar. The increase in your home’s value due to installing solar panels is fully exempt from 100% of the resulting property tax increase.
Texas Solar Rebates
Texas does not have a statewide solar rebate program, but many utility companies and local governments offer rebates and incentives for homeowners who go solar. Solar rebates programs will vary, but they can lower the cost of purchasing a solar PV system in the state of Texas by 10-20%.
DSIRE Incentives Database - Texas
The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) is a comprehensive database that Texas residents can use to search for and find solar energy incentives in Texas and across the entire country.
