Blue Raven Solar started in 2014 when three team members had a goal: to bring clean, renewable energy to homeowners in a way that was not only accessible, but also affordable and with a trustworthy approach. While we began as a small operation, only able to work as solar installers in a small radius of the state of Utah, we have grown over the last eight years to over 2,200 employees and expanded our services to nearly half of the United States of America.
We have received several awards that have been a testament to that significant growth.
Expanding into new markets across the nation has not been easy, but thanks to our amazing customers who have made the switch to solar, we have grown exponentially, and now we have more momentum than ever. This momentum is caused by the same reasons we grew so quickly originally: people want to save money through solar and the idea of clean, accessible energy is more of a reality now than it has ever been.
Because of the dedicated work of our sales, field, and corporate teams, our expansion has been smooth and successful, with bright prospects for the future of Blue Raven Solar.
In our states of operation, we have more than 50 major cities and surrounding areas where we regularly install residential solar panel systems.

With its beautiful landscapes, national parks, and wildlife of several varieties, Idaho is home to 1.6 million people. There is enough solar energy currently in the state to power 92,000 homes, and the state is ranked 27th within the country for their solar energy production, though the solar capacity has grown by 261% in the last year alone, so the future is bright for Idaho solar.
Though Idaho winters can be bitter and unforgiving, solar energy thrives all year long in the Gem State. Solar panels are slightly more efficient in colder weather due to the necessary movement of electrons. Do not worry about the snow coverage, because it will melt quicker than you think and leave your panels sparkling clean.

The Windy City is next on our journey through our solar operations, but no need to fear the wind impacting your solar system!
Panels and installation guidelines are built to withstand the heaviest winds, even category five hurricanes. So, our customers in Chicago have nothing to worry about. In fact, they should be excited to be part of such a fast-growing and beneficial industry. Illinois is ranked 21st for solar capacity, but the state plans to enter 2025 with 25% of the state’s energy needs fulfilled by solar.
Being part of that change is an amazing opportunity, and it is one that will save homeowners thousands of dollars on their energy bills. Illinois credits homeowners who produce excess energy, and those credits last for one year. It is not necessary to install a system that will produce too much excess, because you do not want to overcompensate and not receive the credits you deserve.
Blue Raven Solar knows exactly the right amount of energy production you need to save money efficiently in Illinois.

We are proud to be part of the solar movement in Indianapolis. Indiana ranks 16th in the United States for solar energy and is ranked 4th for projected growth over the next five years. The Crossroads of America is home to 900,000 people. Think of the potential for savings across this population. Solar can save homeowners as much as $50,000 over the lifetime of their system. Multiply it by 900,000 and call it a day—that number is almost too big to believe.
Indiana homeowners do not pay sales tax on their solar system, nor do they see an increase in their property taxes for added value on their home. The current net metering policies guarantee homeowners credits for their excess energy production, but after this year, enrollment in these policies is likely to expire, so the time to go solar is now.
Operating in a city that defies state lines gives us opportunities to bring solar to more people in more places. Kansas City allows us to help homeowners save money in two different states, both part of the same market, though the states do have different policies for different things, and of course, different statistics for their solar capacity. The State of Kansas ranks 44th in the nation for solar capacity, and it is time to improve that!
Net metering allows not only credits for excess energy production, but also compensation for unused credits. There are also tax incentives and rebates available for Kansas homeowners changing to solar.
Spilling over from Cincinnati and growing from the city of Louisville, Kentucky homeowners are part of the solar movement just as much as those in other states we operate in. Kentucky is ranked 47th in solar capacity throughout the United States and only 0.16% of the state’s energy is from solar. Those are definitely going to improve with our expansion into the state.
Along with the federal tax credit all homeowners in the United States benefit from, Kentucky offers rebates and tax exemptions to make the personal power plant even more cost effective for homeowners in the state.
Our operations in Louisville give us the ability to bring solar savings to a state where we can find more homeowners who are ready to switch to renewable energy. The benefits of Kentucky’s solar rebates and incentives make it a perfect place to be if you are ready to go solar!
