Welcome to the SMART SourceSM Solar PV Program

The SMART Source Solar PV Program is designed to help customers of AEP Texas Central Company (AEP TCC) and AEP Texas North Company (AEP TNC) meet a portion of their energy needs with solar electric systems. The Program offers financial incentives that help offset the initial cost of installing a solar energy system. By installing solar on your home or business, you can generate a portion of your own electricity and help the environment.
