Utah enjoys more sunshine than the national average with 238 sunny days per year, making solar an attractive option for homeowners and businesses. Solar energy is not only viable for most households in Utah due to the abundant sunlight, but it can provide backup power when extreme weather causes an outage. With a ranking of 22nd for its energy efficiency policy according to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), 8.34% of Utah's electricity comes from solar sources, privileging 442,889 homes with renewable clean energy - which places it as 12th in America according to Solar Energy Industries Association data (SEIA).
4 Reasons Why It’s Worth Going Solar in Utah
Add battery storage to your solar system so you can rely on clean energy and disconnect from the grid during outages.
COUNT ON SAVINGS
Reduce your carbon footprint while harnessing the power of the sun. Solar panels take advantage of this by providing consistent, reliable power.
LOWER YOUR FOOTPRINT
Solar power has many advantages over fossil fuels as a renewable energy source. It is a more viable option for your home, community, and the environment.
INCREASE HOME VALUE
Due to the increasing popularity of solar-powered homes, they stand out, resulting in immense profits as they sell faster and at a higher value in the national real estate market.
Available Solar Incentives Utah
Incentives help lower the cost of your solar energy system. Those available in Utah include:
The Federal ITC: Most solar energy installations are eligible for the federal tax credit—formally known as the Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which allows you to deduct up to 26% of your solar system’s installation costs from your total tax liability for the year of purchase. Storage costs when paired with solar qualify for the ITC.
State Property Tax Exemption: Solar has been shown to increase the value of your home. Texas is great in that it exempts this addition from your property taxes, meaning you don’t pay extra taxes because you got solar panels.
