If you take the Oncor rebate, meters will be installed on your home that read both inflow and outflow. One will not offset the other.

Your retail electric provider (TXU, Reliant, Green Mountain, Direct Energy, etc.) will get both figures from ERCOT. Your provider will charge you retail (your electric supplier’s version of retail) for your electric usage. The retailer will decide what, if anything. it will pay you for the electricity you generate and send back to the grid.

It can be as small as one cent–or nothing– or as large as the provider wishes. This will make the choice of a provider for those of you who install solar electricity in the Oncor service area very important.

A bill failed to pass the Legislature in 2009. Although the bill did pass the Senate, it never came up for vote in the house as our legislators decided to fight about Voter IDs instead rather than govern or lead for the citizens of Texas. The bill would have made it mandatory for the grid to at least pay you "avoided cost" for the electricity you generate. Now we wait for the 2011 legislature to meet to make this mandatory..

Avoided cost is generally meant to be the cost the electric utility would incur were it to generate the power or purchase the power from another source. In many cases, this is considered to be the fuel cost incurred in generating the electricity.
