Idaho Homeowners Are Switching to Solar (Without Paying A Dime Up Front!)

With the fifth-lowest average electricity prices in the nation, Idaho’s renewable energy resources have clearly made a dent in the state’s payouts. In 2016, Idaho reported that 79% of its power comes from renewable energy sources, and 50,523 houses are solar-powered. Recently, Idaho was named as one of nine states with grant programs for renewable energy, making homeowners even more excited to go solar. Ready to switch your Idaho home to solar?

Even without a set Renewable Portfolio Standard, it’s no miracle that Idaho has come out on top of solar power initiatives with the state’s generous grant programs, loans, and tax incentives. Residential solar power accounts for 1/4 of the state’s total solar electricity, and small-scale solar facilities can take advantage of statewide programs. Thanks to 4,700 MW of solar panels to power about 26.4% of the state & new solar plans in the works, Idaho’s solar future is looking bright.

Rebates & Incentives

Famous for its grant programs and tax incentives, Idaho has a number of options available to residents using solar power. State grants may be provided to nonprofit organizations or private sectors for solar energy, without having to match the amount given. Idaho also offers the Residential Alternative Energy Tax Deduction, which gives residents using solar power large income tax cuts for the first few years after installation. Each of the state’s major electric utilities additionally offers incentive programs of their own.

Net Metering

While they’re not required by law, Idaho’s three major electric utilities – Idaho Power, Rocky Mountain Power, and Avista Utilities – offer net metering programs to pay for excess solar electricity produced. These services apply to commercial, agricultural, and residential customers. The credit earned can offset the remaining costs of residents’ electric bills, essentially eliminating electric charges for solar users.
