City of Sunset Valley - Solar Water Heating Rebate Program

June 21, 2023


The City of Sunset Valley offers rebates to local homeowners who install solar water heating systems on their properties. The local rebate acts as an add-on to the solar water heating rebates that are offered by Austin Energy to its electric customers. The Sunset Valley rebate is set at 30% of the installed system cost, up to a maximum rebate of $2,000 per homeowner, supplementing the Austin Energy Rebate of $1,500 for systems on new homes and $2,000 for systems on existing homes.

In order to participate in the program, local residents must first be approved for a rebate through the Austin Energy program and meet the corresponding equipment, warranty, and installation requirements. This includes a requirement that the solar water heater pre-heats water for a permanently installed electric water heater. Local residents of utilities other than Austin Energy are not eligible to participate in the Sunset Valley program.
