AEP Smart Source Solar PV Program

The SMART Source Solar PV Program is designed to help customers of AEP Texas Central Company (AEP TCC), AEP Texas North Company (AEP TNC) and Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) 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.

How to partecipate

Customers must work with registered Service Providers who submit applications for incentive funds. Bodine Scott Renewable is a register Service Provider.

Once the solar PV system is specified and agreed to between you and Bodine Scott Renewable, the participation process is as follows:

  1. Bodine Scott Renewable submits project pre-application materials to the Program Manager. The project pre-application contains information about:

    • The customer, 

    • Proposed installation site, 

    • Technical details of the proposed installation,

    • The requested incentive amount, and 

    • The entity who is requested to receive the incentive check (this is typically the Service Provider, but can also be the customer, or another entity).

  1. The Program Manager reviews the application to verify eligibility for an incentive, and, if approved, sends a letter to Bodine Scott Renewable approving the project and the requested rebate amount. The turnaround time for approvals is typically about 2 weeks, but can take longer if applications are incomplete or if there are problems with what is proposed.

  2. Once approved, Bodine Scott Renewable works with you to schedule the installation. Bodine Scott Renewable obtains locally-required permits, completes construction, passes local inspections (if required) and informs the Program Manager when the job is complete. 

  3. The Program Manager may then schedule and conduct their own inspection of the completed system. If selected for inspection, we  aim to complete the inspection within two weeks of being informed by Bodine Scott Renewable that the project is complete.

  4. Once the installation is completed and verified, the Program Manager requests incentive check processing from the Utilities. Within 6-8 weeks after passing the final inspection, the Program Manager mails the incentive check to Bodine Scott Renewable or customer.
