Solar power in Clearfield, Utah

Rocky Mountain Power offers net metering to its Clearfield solar customers but in a bit of a C- way. Like most net metering programs 1kWh exported to the grid eliminates the cost of 1kWh drawn from the grid at a later time. Excess kWh's after covering your bill may be used to offset future bills up to 1 year later. Where RMP's program lacks behind is if at the end of a 12 month billing cycle the customer still has credit, instead of depositing the money into your account it just expires, you get nothing. Only commercial customers get paid.

Fortunately Clearfield does have some great financial incentives. At the beginning of each year RMP offers a $1,100 up $4,400 rebate program, the catch is that only enough funding is provided by the state for 125 $4,400 rebates so places disappear fast! Utah does provide a state tax credit of 25% of the cost up to $2,000 which is nice considering most states offer no tax credits. After deducting rebates and other tax credits then you may apply the 30% federal solar tax credit covering 30% of the remaining cost. The federal solar tax credit may be extended over several years and imposes no size limits to receive the full 30%. Rocky Mountain Power is fighting to reduce net metering returns even more so don't wait!
