Solar power in Plano, Texas
Oncor by far offers the best solar incentives in Plano and maybe even the whole state. For each kW of installed solar Oncor offers a rebate of $538.53. There is also a Feed in Tariff (FiT) of 25 cents per kWh nearly 3 times the retail power rate. With most people being out of the house during the day when solar is producing the most power this FiT will make you a lot of money.
30% of the system cost after the utility rebate may also be claimed as a deduction to federal taxes. The federal solar tax credit can be used in parts over several years or all in one year, there is also no size limit to receive the full 30% credit. Especially in Texas incentives like these are extremely rare and Oncor will slowly be reducing their incentives in the next few years.
