Utah Incentive Programs, Utility Rebates, Utility Loans and Utility Incentives
The Utah Department of Natural Resources is home to information about the Renewable Energy Systems Tax Credit. Utah residents can take a tax credit of 25% of the cost of installing a solar system at home (capped at $2,000). If that’s more than your tax liability, you can spread the credit over as many as four years. Corporate customers can take a tax credit for 10% of the cost of a system that generates more than 660 kW (capped at $50,000).
Energy companies and commercial customers do not have to pay sales tax on renewable energy generation equipment under the Renewable Energy Sales Tax Exemption.
The City of St. George
St. George offers a great rebate of $2,000/kW AC generated from solar or wind power. The residential rebate is capped at $6,000, but that’s perfect for your 3kW system at home. Commercial customers are eligible for a rebate of up to $20,000.
Rocky Mountain Power (a PacifiCorp subsidiary)
Rocky Mountain Power offers a similar rebate of $1.10/watt AC for residential, $0.85/watt AC for small non-residential, and $0.65/watt AC for large non-residential customers. Their rebate is also capped at $4,400 for residential customers, $21,250 for small non-residential customers and $650,000 for large non-residential customers.
