What is Oncor?

Oncor is not an electric retailer like Austin Energy or Pedernales Electric Cooperative. Instead, they’re the folks that build, own and maintain the equipment used for electricity transportation (e.g. powerlines). Since Texas has a deregulated electricity market, you might be an Oncor customer and not even know it!

To give you some idea of eligibility requirements and program incentives, we’ve included the rebate information from the most recent round.

To Qualify for the Oncor Solar Rebates

The solar photovoltaic system must meet the following requirements:

N

Your system has to be brand new

N

You must use a participating contractor such as Revolve Solar

N

The azimuth of the solar array must be between 90 and 270 degrees (south-facing is best, but east/west roofs are also eligible)

N

The tilt angle needs to be between 0 (flat) and your local latitude + 15 degrees

N

The solar array must be between 1 kW DC and 10 kW DC

Not sure if you’re in Oncor territory? You can check your electric bill for the following ID numbers: 44372 or 17699. These correspond to Oncor. The above map gives a good approximation of the portion of Revolve’s service area that may include homes with Oncor meters. Please note: not every home in the highlighted section necessarily has an Oncor meter.
