Find out how much you can save by going solar in the Lone Star State

Want to lead Texas's transition to solar energy?

Cowboys… BBQ… Chili… Football… Longhorns… The Alamo… What isn't Texas known for? With some of the best sunshine in the country, why not add Solar Energy to the list?

Plenty of rays are not the only thing that make going solar attractive in the Lone Star State. Texans are eligible for some serious incentives like the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). This means that you can realize substantial savings through solar ownership by deducting 26% of your system's price tag from what you owe Uncle Sam. Heck, even utility companies have been warming up to solar by offering cash rebates to customers. Many areas in Texas also offer Net Metering Programs, whereby the utility company will credit you for any excess power generated by your solar system.

What Our Texas Solar Customers Are Saying

I financed my solar system through Dividend Solar and it's been a great experience. I would recommend them to anyone interested in this kind of service. Everyone I have spoken with is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I get a real person right away on the phone when I call and often it's the same person. That's really rare these days and refreshing. Their financing plans are simple to understand and they are willing to work with you, depending on your individual needs. A++.David | Austin, TX

We're very satisfied with Dividend Solar. They were easy to work with during the enrollment process. They're professional and knowledgeable, and the installation team - specifically - was very easy to work with and answered all of our questions. I have had a follow up with the customer service before, and they did come out to inspect our system after it was put in. I would recommended them.Gary | Spicewood, TX

A solar company here in Austin recommended Dividend Solar. I decided to look into solar energy to create savings, energy security, to lock in electricity rates, and for environmental reasons. Enrolling with Dividend Solar was very easy. The solar company, Native Solar, and the person I was working with did some of the application for us and got us started. Dividend Solar’s website's excellent, very simple, and easy to use. Very seamless. I've had interactions with their customer service team over email and all went very well. They were very prompt in replying and gave great service. I like their model of financing compared to some of the other models out there. They're a great outfit and I'm very satisfied with my decision to go solar.Joshua | Austin, TX

How Going Solar in Texas Works

Step 1: Sign up online
Step 2: Talk to a solar specialist
Step 3: Check out your custom design
Step 4: Relax during installation
Step 5: Watch your savings grow


The savings potential from going solar in Texas can easily become a reality for you. Aside from saving money on your monthly electric bill, the other key incentive that helps solar ownership in Texas make sense is the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) available in all 50 states*. This credit, which is equal to 26% of your system cost, is applied to the federal taxes you owe each year. The ITC is a great benefit of going solar: money that you would otherwise pay in taxes can now be used to own your solar system sooner. It is important to note that you can only reap the benefits of the federal ITC if you own your system directly - it is not available to homeowners who opt for a third-party ownership model, such as a Solar Lease or Power Purchase Agreement. With a Dividend Finance solar loan, you own your system and you get all of the economic benefits of going solar in Texas.

Finally, like many other states, Texas utilities have Net Metering policies which allow homeowners to be credited for extra energy fed back to the power grid. If designed optimally, a homeowner can expect to offset 100% of their current electricity use while also having some left over to sell back to the grid.
