Oncor Area Electricity Incentive ProgramsOncor Solar Incentive Program

Disclaimer: Quick Electricity is a Texas retail electricity provider, not a subsidiary or otherwise affiliated with Oncor.

Oncor offers several energy incentives for its customers, including a solar power program for homes and businesses. The 2021 incentive program was launched on January 20, with a total budget of $3,387,390. In 2020, Oncor provided a total of $1,905,141 for 376 residential solar installations, and $2,680,807 for 68 commercial installations.

The 2021 solar incentive budget was $1,348,950 for the residential sector and $2,038,440 for the commercial sector, and it may be increased based on program performance. The budget was increased by $700,000 in 2020, to cover additional projects.

Congress extended the 26% federal tax credit for solar power in December 2020, and this benefit is available for both homes in business. This makes solar power even more affordable for Texan homes and businesses in the Oncor service area.

Program Terms and Benefits

The program is open for project applications and the following benefits are available:

  • Up to $8,500 for home solar systems with a capacity of 1 – 15 kW DC.
  • Up to $120,000 for commercial solar systems with a capacity of 5 – 300 kW DC.

Eligibility

To be eligible for Oncor incentives, solar power systems must be installed by an approved Service Provider like Prostar Energy Solutions. Oncor is the largest transmission and distribution utility in Texas, with a service territory that covers 408 communities and 98 counties, including the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Tyler, Odessa, Round Rock and Waco
