Solar power in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Oklahoma Gas and Electric (OG&E) offers its Oklahoma City customers net metering. However, OG&E is not required to pay its customers for excess generation their solar systems produce. This means if you apply to the net metering program, there is no guarantee you will receive compensation for excess energy your system generates and sends to the grid.
Despite OG&E’s substandard net metering policy, Oklahoma City residents can take advantage of the federal solar tax credit. The tax credit is equal to a large percentage of the cost of a solar system — 26% in 2020, and 22% in 2021 — and is applied to your federal income taxes. In some cases, you may be able to wipe out your entire tax bill for a year!
