Centerpoint Solar Program

July 6, 2011

As solar energy incentives go, Centerpoint does not currently have any programs in place for assistance. However, there are several programs available that seek to help low income families improve the energy efficiency of their home. Since operating your home at maximum efficiency is the first step in the process of installing solar panels, Centerpoint plays a very crucial role in the effort to make Texas a green state.

Centerpoint Low Income Energy Efficiency Programs

  • The Residential Advanced Lighting Program is available to upgrade your home’s lighting system to one that is more highly efficient.
  • The Energy Star New Homes Program provides incentives to homeowners who are building their homes to meet and exceed Energy Star standards.
  • The Hard To Reach Standard Offer Program will provide low cost energy efficiency home improvements to families at or below 200% of the federal poverty level.
  • The Rebuilding Houston Together Program targets low income housing to improve their efficiency and raise awareness of the importance of conservation.

The First Step Toward a Brighter Future

Many of these programs may be able to be combined with the federal tax credit for energy efficiency provided that the improvements are completed prior to December 31, 2010. For low income families especially, the increased savings on the power bill that result from a more energy efficient home can help to save for the ultimate installation of a solar panel system. We must all crawl before we walk; isn’t it time you made the first step?
