Austin Energy offers a rebate of $2,500 to customers who purchase a solar system and pass a solar education course. The solar education course is a great resource for those who want to build their solar know-how and become a more informed buyer. Upon completing the course, you’ll take a short quiz and pick a participating contractor to complete your rebate application.
CPS Energy offers $2,500 (up to 50% of the system’s total cost) for qualifying home solar systems. Homeowners may also receive a $500 premium for installing local modules. If you go non-local, the rebate is reduced by 25% and you won’t receive the additional $500 premium.
