Solar power in Katy, Texas
Alba energy offers Katy solar customers a rebate of up to $4,500 and the ability to sell power back to the grid with their net metering policy. Net metering requires your utility to credit unused solar generation sent to the grid at the retail power price offsetting the cost of power drawn from the grid on a 1 for 1 basis. When more power is exported to the grid than consumed customers are credited on future bills or even payed if credit still remains at the end of the 12 month billing cycle. With plenty of sun net metering in Katy can save or even make you some serious money and also factor in that with the rebate and 30% tax credit a solar system here is way cheaper!
If you have a taxable income you can claim 30% of the system costs as a deduction to federal taxes after deducting your rebate first. The federal solar tax credit can be used in increments over several years if you wish and is also set to cover 30% no matter how large the system. Incentives in Katy are extremely rare and being so generous it is unlikely they will last long. Put in your zip code below to view how many solar panels you need, how much it will cost and how long it will take to get your money back!
