Earn automatic clean energy bill credits to offset up to 100% of your energy charges on your electricity bill each month.7, 16  In other states, this type of arrangement is known as net metering. If you need more electricity, you’ll pay a simple, flat rate for 100% wind or solar power from the grid.

Add a new rooftop solar panel system to your home in Texas and your property taxes won’t go up.8 Installing a photovoltaic (PV) system in Texas could also help you build home value.

Texas’s Solar Potential Is at Reach



*Consumer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives, and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a consumer purchases or leases a home solar system from Sunrun.

**We recommend contacting a tax professional to most accurately determine the impact tax credits may have on your federal taxes.
