Solar power in Dallas, Texas
Since most of the lines are owned by Oncor almost all Dallas residents and business owners can receive a rebate up to $5,000 averaged at about $2,800. Rebates like these are a rare sight nowadays. All utilities offer a solar buy back program crediting you for unused power exported to the grid. If your solar system produces more than what the home uses you will receive credit on future bills. Not to mention after you subtract your utility rebate you can claim 30% of the cost as a deduction to federal taxes over however many years you please. The 30% federal solar tax credit imposes no size restrictions, it'll always cover 30%. These 3 incentives together are rare and usually don't last long since being seen as too generous. No good will come from waiting to go solar.
