Utah’s national ranking for solar generation shot up from 26th place in 2018 to 11th place in 2019. Prices have fallen by 36 percent over the past five years attracting more Utahns to switch to solar power.
The beehive state has an average of 226 sunny days each year and is the 5th sunniest state in the US. That's only a difference of only 15 percent compared to the best state for solar, California. The greatest snow on earth in Utah is a concern but keeping solar panels clear can mitigate this.
Utah produces roughly 1,757.74 MW of electricity through solar power, which translates to 6.35 percent of the state’s electricity. With the current rapid growth in the industry, another 1,567 MW is expected to come online in the next five years.
As of 2019, 36,218 solar installations power 340,361 homes. The state benefits from 6,045 jobs in the solar industry. With several large retailers , including IKEA and Patagonia going solar and an expansive solar plant in Paragonah, the future of solar is healthy in Utah.
Utah is ranked in the top one-fifth nationwide for solar power generation.
Sarah Wright of Utah Clean Energy states that Utah is "amongst the best states in the country for sunshine" and sits "in the top 10 for solar resources." Wright also suggests that improvements to interconnection standards and net metering have helped solar shine in Utah.
Previously, the biggest barrier to solar in Utah was financial, but as the price of solar drops and legislation to decrease costs further crop up, that barrier is breaking. Solar power is expected to continue its upward trajectory through 2040 at the least.
The cost of installing solar power in the Beehive State is not prohibitive. As in all states, a 26 percent federal tax credit is available along with a renewable energy system tax credit . * This credit allows you to claim up to $1,600 toward 25 percent of equipment costs. Additional incentives are available depending on your utility company and area.
Tax credits and local incentives can cut costs by thousands of dollars.
With a projected payback period of just over nine years (depending on your home and solar system), solar installations in Utah make sound economic sense.
As mentioned, the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) can provide you a 26 percent tax credit for the purchase of solar until the end of 2020 when it will be phased out for residential solar.*
The Utah state government also offers a credit against income taxes the following year, allowing residential solar consumers to offset equipment and installation costs.*
Utah is also net-metering friendly. Net metering allows you to send surplus energy back to the grid. You can then call on this when it’s snowy or cloudy, so you’ll never be without power. Rocky Mountain Power offers the most competitive net metering program in Utah.
Solar easement laws allow you to work with your neighbors to ensure no obstructions cast shade over your solar installation. There's also a solar rights law in place in Utah to prevent developers from vetoing the installation of solar panels on homes.
Then there is also the before mentioned legislation passed by Governor Herbert safeguarding consumers while simultaneously extending the state tax credit.

SunPower does not warrant, guarantee or otherwise advise its customers about specific tax outcomes or their ability to qualify for local incentives.

Very good experience from initial contact, education on solar, competitive pricing, excellent coordination of professional installation and outstanding follow up! Very happy with system!
I had a SunPower system (35 panels and 2 batteries) installed by Custom Electrical (Custom Energy). I found them knowledgeable and easy to work with from the project start to finish. The design and install crews did excellent work and took my concerns into account. Their work was completed on time and on budget. I would use them again in the future and I certainly recommend them.
We contacted Custom Energy late in the fall hoping that our system could be installed before year end. They worked quickly with the design and permitting process and installation was completed in December. They did a very professional job and everything works like it is supposed to.
They came by and did the standard entry point spraying and checked for rodents. Very professional, friendly, and quick. They always ask if there is anything I've noticed in between treatments that they should look for and are very happy to check and treat if necessary. Very happy with the service!
Professional, fast, and friendly
Had a bad experience Edge Pest control but the customer care manager called and resolved my issue. He explained that he would communicate with the employees so that in the future there would be less miscommunication and better service.
The staff has always been prompt and friendly. The last service guy even text me a picture of a large opening that needed to be resealed and offered to fix it that day. It was an area that I normally wouldn’t even looked at and appreciate the extra effort to notify me of a potential problem. I’ve been impressed from the beginning with Edge. In fact, we never buy anything from door to door sales but the sales guy was so knowledgeable & friendly that my husband happily signed up.
Kudos to Nathan and Micah.This company is good quality and provides good info and understanding of their policies and procedures. Nathan and Micah came out and did a great job. We will be getting follow up services and hope to have these two guy show up again.
A great experience! Social Distancing. Very friendly and knowledgeable! Great Experience!!! Thank you for all you do! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PEST CONTROL COMPANY!!!!
Quick, attentive response to inquiry. Next day service. Professional, congenial representative visited and performed the spray!
Graham was great... very thorough, nice, professional... thank you Graham!!!
I have been a customer since March 2020 and am proud to say that I appreciate and value the services provided by Edge. I have peace of mind knowing my kids and pets are safe from a variety of pests that we inherited with our new home. Their product is one of a kind however, the technicians are what really make this company stand out to me. Each technician I’ve encountered always has a vast knowledge about Edge’s products, they do a great job explaining them to you, and are happy to share their firsthand experiences in dealing with these pests directly. Graham is my regular technician and he is awesome! Not only do I trust him but I can also depend on him to answer my questions and make recommendations. If I ever have a problem or need additional services he is only a text away and is always professional and timely with his responses. He is also very courteous and not pushy when he informs me about new products and services offered by Edge. I would definitely recommend Edge’s services to anyone looking for A+ pest control solutions with technicians that will exceed your expectations. Thank you Edge!
Tyler was great, reached out before to let me know when he’d be there and asked what needed to be attended to. Let me know when he was finished and what all he had done. 5-Star service
Love the service, Tyler was very professional, knowledgeable and just a nice guy! Went above and beyond what I expected!
This was for a follow up...great service, and knowledgeable and friendly staff...these guys are great
The service technicians are professional and knowledgeable. They always contact us to let us know when they will be arriving at our home to perform any service.
Got Edge peat control to help me with grain beettle issue. First service was ok. I called in 2 weeks since it wasn't going down, they were responsive and sent someone the next day. Beetles started going down after that. Then after 1 month, they came again and Graham sprayed the house thoroughly. Very happy with Graham. Wish he came the other times too. He was very professional and took care of outside the house as well. We haven't seen ants or other bugs that we seen last summer. Beetle problem went down a lot and hoping with another spray, we should be able to kill them all. Update 11/13: Still having issues but a manager took over my account and has been actively working on to get rid of my beettles issue. Very happy with their service. I understand that bug issues are a process to eliminate but Edge is working hard to get my house beettles free.
Nice, professional, and explained everything. Showed me problem areas I didnt know I had. I am very happy with the service.
They were in neighborhood servicing others so I spoke with rep and had them Do my service and signed up. Can not advise if great year as pest control will know better in month. The staff was friendly .
