Solar power in American Fork, Utah
Rocky Mountain Power provide net metering to their American Fork solar customers. Net metering credits each kWh exported to the grid at the same value as another drawn from the grid. With solar producing the most during the day when people are usually out of the house net metering makes paying off your electric bill easy. Sadly you can only carry over credit to reduce bills within the same 12 month billing cycle, any credit left at the end of the 12 months expires without compensation.
25% of the system cost up to $2,000 may be claimed as a deduction to state taxes. After the state tax deduction you may also claim 30% of the system cost as a federal tax deduction. The federal solar tax credit has no size limit and can be spread over many years. With incentives this good solar is an easy choice, don't wait for them to expire!
