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.
