Installation costs and process
Champion Solar has not disclosed their pricing system and customers have not revealed how much they paid for their services, however, based on their reviews, customers have expressed much satisfaction with the company’s pricing, saying it is very competitive.
There are also solar incentives available in Texas that could cut these costs to very affordable levels.
Some of the solar incentives available in Texas include;
- Federal solar tax credit: With this solar incentive, every solar patronizer in the US is eligible to a 26% tax credit for solar systems installed in the years 2020 to 2022, then it comes down to 22% in 2023. This means you can reduce the total cost of installing a solar system for your home or business by 26%. But remember this incentive applies to those who buy their system either by cash purchase or solar loan, and not leases.
- Texas solar rebate programs: Texas doesn’t offer any statewide solar tax credit or solar rebate program but many utilities and local governments in the state offer incentives to homeowners who wish to go solar. Here are some solar rebate programs in Texas:
- Austin Energy: People who live in Austin can get a rebate of $2,500 from Austin Energy. And they are also eligible for the Austin Energy’s Value of Solar Tariff, which pays $0.097 for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) your solar panels generate.
- CPS Energy: If you’re a CPS Energy customer, you’re eligible to receive $2,500 for installing a solar system in your home. You’re also eligible for an extra $500 if you install locally-sourced solar panels.
- Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative, and the City of Sunset Valley also offer rebates for solar patronizers in their areas.
- Renewable energy systems property tax exemption
Texas has a renewable energy property tax exemption so that residents of the State don’t pay extra taxes as a result of the value their solar panels add to their homes.
Taking advantage of these solar incentives in Texas can reduce the cost of Champion Solar’s installation services by more than 50%.
