Solar power in Pleasant Grove, Utah

RMP offers a pretty average net metering plan to its solar customers. Each kWh of unused solar generation sent to the grid offsets the cost of drawing a kWh at a later time eg. at night or on a cloudy day. RMP does let you use excess credit after covering your bill to offset the cost of future bills but they do not credit your account if at the end of the billing cycle you still have credit, it just disappears.

There is a state tax credit for 25% of the system cost up to $2,000. After deducting the state tax credit you may claim 30% of the remaining cost as a deduction to federal taxes. This incentive may be spread over several years and no matter the system size 30% is always covered. Overall incentives are great in Pleasant Grove and with RMP trying to reduce net metering even further don't wait another moment!
