With over 300 days of sunshine a year, progressive renewable energy goals, and increasing demand and energy savings, Austin has ample incentives for switching to solar energy. Local cash rebates include $0.80 per watt up to $9,636 for residential properties as well as a performance-based incentive for commercial solar systems of $0.07 per kWH generated from solar energy. In addition, federal tax credits and local grants make solar panel installation in Austin more affordable than ever before. Local incentives, combined with the cost-savings from increasing electric utility rates, make investing in solar energy a decision that will continue to provide savings for years to come.

At Freedom Solar we believe that every project has a unique solution that will maximize the return on investment. We start every engagement with an in-person meeting and site survey. This might include measurements for maximum coverage, electrical infrastructure examinations, and a comprehensive conversation about the solar energy needs of the home or business. We understand that going solar can be a large investment, and we want to be sure that investment is well worth the cost for every client we work with.
Customization is key when building a residential or commercial solar energy system. No two buildings are the same, so we take the time to design the right system for each situation. The design phase takes many factors into account, like the overall budget for the project, the physical limitations of the building in question, and the location of the building relative to the sun and objects that might hinder the performance of the system. Our goal is to make each factor work in balance with the rest. This will not only help the design look appealing, but it will help the solar system produce the most power possible.
We take pride in our ability to work with all clients on a variety of budgets. Our customers can take advantage of the 30% federal tax credit, depreciation, and a number of local incentives and grants. Freedom Solar also has strong partnerships with financing firms that can help your business go solar with no money down.
