Austin Energy offers two incentives on the installation of a solar photovoltaic (PV) system to customers with a commercial Austin Energy account number. The first program is a performance-based incentive (PBI) which provides a credit on your business' bill for the power your solar PV system generates. The second is a capacity-based incentive, offering customers an up-front check for installed solar PV capacity.

The incentive rate varies based on capacity of  the program, though PV systems shall not be sized to produce more than 110% of the historical annual energy consumption of the connected load. In order to qualify for this program, PV modules must be new and be listed by the California Energy Commission. In addition, all equipment and installation measures must have a 10-year warranty. Licensed electrical contractors must obtain the appropriate permits and perform all electrical connections. Additional system conditions apply, see the above linked PDFs or program website for further details.
