Texas does not have a state-wide net-metering program. But utilities are allowed to offer their own net metering programs anyway and many do it, including Green Mountain Energy, Austin Energy, El Paso Electric and San Antonio Public Service.
Green Mountain Energy pays solar customers for 100 percent of the excess energy they feed onto the grid at the retail rate up to 500 kilowatt hours per month. Beyond that threshold, the utility pays 50 percent of the retail value of the electricity.
