 At the moment, the solar rebates have been depleted and the program is suspended until funds can be secured.

Denton Municipal Electric (DME) offers rebates to its electric customers for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) and solar water heating systems. The solar rebates are designed for residential and small commercial customers and are available for both existing buildings and new construction. Applicants must be a home or rental property owner.

The following requirements apply to the PV rebate:

  • Applicant must contact Program Manager to receive Interconnection Agreement, Application for Interconnection Packet, and GreenSense PV Rebate Agreement.
  • All applications are processed on a case by case basis.
  • Structures will only qualify for this rebate once.
  • Documents must be completed and approved PRIOR to installation of the photovoltaic system. Post inspections by DME and the City of Denton Building Inspections Department are required on all installations before issuance of the rebate.

The following requirements apply to the solar water heater rebate:

  • Solar water heater must be sized to accommodate a family of four, at minimum.
  • Solar water heater must preheat water for an electric water heater that is permanently installed at the structure.
  • Solar water heater must have permanently installed electric backup.
  • Structures will only qualify for this rebate once per 12-month period.
  • Applications must be completed and approved PRIOR to installation of the solar water heating system. Post-inspections by DME and the City of Denton Building Inspections Department are required on all installations before issuance of the rebate.

Failure to follow these or other requirements of the City of Denton Building Inspections Division may render the system ineligible for the incentive and the system will not be allowed to interconnect with the DME electrical grid. Requests for payment must be received by DME within 30 days of installation. Credits will be made to the electric utility accounts of electric utility retail customers that purchase the qualified equipment. Participating builders that install qualified systems will receive a cash payment. All installations must be for accounts served by DME and must meet all applicable national, local, and manufacturers’ codes and specifications.

The DME Application for Interconnection and the DME interconnection Agreement detail specific requirements for this rebate.
