Solar power in Provo, Utah

Provo Power solar customers are provided with net metering at the retail power price. For every kWh sent to the grid a kWh drawn at a later time is not charged to the customer. Usually your solar system will export more energy than the home consumes over a month and you'll receive 6.7 cents per kWh. Credit can only be used to offset future bills, any unused credit at the end of a billing cycle will expire without compensation.

Utah does offer a state tax credit of 25% of costs up until $2,000. After you claim the state tax deduction 30% of the remaining costs may also be claimed as a reduction to federal taxes over however many years you please. The 30% federal solar tax credit also has no size limitation, it'll always cover 30%. With incentives this good don't wait another minute!

Provo residents would be happy to know that they are eligible for some amazing solar incentives. Besides the 30% federal solar tax credit Utah offers a state tax credit of up to $2,000 or 25% of the system price. Utah also has a net metering law meaning that Rocky Mountain Power and most Coop's must record and credit the customer for excess solar generation which is excellent since solar produces the most during the day when people are out of the house. The rate at which you are credited varies from utility but the largest by far Rocky Mountain Power must give 1 for 1 net metering with their retail power price.
