Dallas, TX – TXU Energy and SolarCity, a leading solar and energy efficiency provider, are expanding their partnership by establishing a $5 million incentive fund to encourage and accelerate solar energy adoption in Texas. The new solar fund will provide a $1,000 incentive for up to 5,000 new or current TXU Energy residential customers who sign up for the solar offer.
The companies previously launched the first residential solar lease offering in Texas in February 2010. The fund announced today is available immediately in the Dallas, Fort Worth area and makes TXU Energy’s solar solutions even more attractive for interested consumers.
“Our goal is to deliver innovative solutions that give customers more choice and flexibility in managing their energy usage,” said Jim Burke, CEO for TXU Energy. “Through our partnership with SolarCity, the national leader in solar services, we are making renewable energy even more affordable to our customers.”
