Many Texas residents rely on Oncor as their source of electricity. In fact, Oncor is the largest transmission and distribution utility in the state. Oncor has a solid history of helping its customers improve their energy efficiency through incentive program offerings, including the popular Take a Load Off Texas.
The 2022 Oncor Incentive Program has begun, and funds are available for a variety of upgrades to improve energy efficiency and reduce the electricity use in your home. In this article, we'll look at the 2022 Oncor Incentive Programs and let you know how Team Enoch can help you out.
Oncor customers pay a small surcharge on every energy bill to fund programs that make it more affordable for homeowners to make energy efficiency upgrades to their homes.
Oncor's energy efficiency programs are a win-win. Oncor saves on the cost of building new electrical generation installations, has reduced loads during periods of peak demand, and meets state government mandates, while their customers save money on their utility bills by upgrading their homes to higher efficiency HVAC systems or a central air conditioner, investing in weatherizing, adding solar power, and more. In short, they become more energy efficient.
These offerings from Oncor vary from year to year, so it's not safe to assume that an incentive program that was offered last year will be offered again, or that the same amount of money will be available for homeowners in the form of rebates.
Let's examine the 2022 incentives offered by Oncor.
One important fact to remember about these programs is that Oncor only budgets a limited amount of money for them. Once the pot of money has been used up, opportunities for customers will disappear until next year.
Because this is a first-come, first-served program, it's important to schedule your work right away so you can take advantage of any benefits. All of the programs we'll be discussing open for applications on February 1st.
Each incentive program targets different key areas that can benefit you, and provide real savings in your home energy costs. The main categories for residential customers are:
Let's examine some of the important points of each of these programs.
The Home Energy Efficiency Standard Offer Program (HEE SOP) is available to all Oncor residential customers.
