Solar just makes sense in Utah, but you have to act quick! The quicker you switch, the more you can save with the Renewable Energy Systems Tax Credit. The credit is being reduced by $200 per year, until it completely disappears in 2024.
The potential for energy savings is huge, especially for larger Utah homes. The goal is to design your system to offset* your electricity consumption, even for those hot summers and snowy winters. With solar, your home will run on sunshine during the day. At night, you can avoid using energy from the grid if you have batteries that store any excess energy produced.
Scheduled maintenance or unforeseen weather can cause outages for Utah homeowners. You can be prepared for such situations with a solar system and batteries. In the event of an outage, you can keep your air conditioner or heater running with any excess energy you have stored in your batteries. Batteries can help you keep the power on during outages. Talk to your dealer about what batteries are the right fit for your system and lifestyle.
