Why switch to Solar in TX?
Save money, avoid rising power bills, protect against blackouts & more
Living in a hot, sunny climate makes Texas an ideal place for solar. But along with the heat, often comes rising power bills and rolling blackouts. Solar can protect you against both while saving you money in a variety of ways.
Up to 30% in federal tax credits
Depending on your situation, you may qualify for the The Solar Investment Tax Credit, which can reduce the cost of your system by up to 30%.
Local incentives & rebates may be available
In addition to the federal tax credit, you may also be eligible for local solar incentives and rebates offered by your area and/or utility companies.
Pay the same amount every month
No more fluctuating power bills. By switching to solar, you’ll pay the same amount every month for the length of your loan.
Get paid for generating excess energy
While Texas doesn’t have a statewide net metering policy, many local utility companies will credit you for excess energy your system produces.
Your property taxes won’t go up
Your new solar system is exempt from property taxes in Texas, which means the value of your home will go up, not your tax bill.
Support the grid while protecting against blackouts
More homes using solar power in Texas means less pressure on the grid and fewer blackouts during times of high demand.

Solar panels are made of special cells (PV or photovoltaic cells) that absorb sunlight and produce an electrical current.
In order for your home to use that electrical current (known as DC or Direct Current), it must be converted into AC (or Alternating Current), which is done through micro inverters that are attached to each solar panel.
Once the energy has been converted, it runs through your electrical panel, gets distributed within your home, and can be used to power your appliances, lights, and more.
The following solar tax credits and incentives are available in Texas. To find out if you’re eligible, we recommend contacting our team for more information and speaking with a tax professional who can help.
The Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a federal tax credit for those who purchase solar energy systems for residential, commercial or utility scale properties. Through this legislation, all solar systems installed between 2022 and 2023 are eligible for a federal tax credit. If you qualify, you could reduce the cost of your system by up to 30% (Source: Energy.gov).
Texas offers a 100% property tax exemption on the appraised value of an on-site solar, wind or biomass power generating device.
For example, if your property is valued and taxed at $150,000 and you add a $15,000 system that increases the property value, the exemption applies to the added value, so with the exemption you will only be taxed on the property value before you added the system (Source: Texas Land Conservation Assistance Network).
While Texas doesn’t have a statewide net metering policy, many utilities in the state have policies that will credit you for excess energy produced by your solar system – typically “paid out” in the form of credits on your electric bill (Source: energysage.com)
Depending on where you live, additional incentives and rebates may be offered by your town/city and/or by your utility company. To find out what’s available and if you’re eligible, contact your local government and utility companies or reach out to the ION team who can point you in the right direction
