alternative energy incentives in Houston?

I've read that Austin has incetives for homeowners who get solar panels installed on their homes. Does anyone know if Houston has anything like that? An internet search didn't get me much of anything

These guys have the info but they don't do search-engine optimizaton...

DSIRE: Incentives by State: Incentives in Texas

The federal incentives are due to expire at the end of 2008 but the national solar industry association has been nagging Congress to get going on that. It'll probably get fixed after the election during the lame-duck session.

I think the conglomeration bill that was approved yesterday has some provisions that will result in some "enhancement" of alternative energy programs included in it. That will take a few days (months) to get applied.
