Locals, like you, are committed to higher standards when it comes to quality of life and preserving an unparalleled natural environment.

How Solar Energy Works
How solar energy works is a combination of technology, economics, and customer service. But it begins with the sun beaming enough energy to earth each hour to power global civilization for a year. With the right equipment, you can harness your share of it and power your life on sunlight. Blue Raven Solar combines all those into a hassle-free experience to make going solar almost as easy as flipping a switch.
The Technology: Photovoltaics, power inverters, net metering, and photons from the sun create a clean, renewable power source for homeowners. Switching to solar shrinks utility bills and your carbon footprint while boosting the value of your home.
The Economics: Falling equipment prices, lucrative tax incentives, and attractive financing make solar energy more accessible to average homeowners than ever. In today’s energy market, rooftop solar often pays back its initial price in just a few years.
The Service: Going solar happens in steps: consultation, design, permitting, installation, inspection, and energization. Each step involves its own process. When you go solar with Blue Raven, our team works hard to keep the whole experience trouble-free.
Become Your Own Power Plant
At Blue Raven this is the heart of what we believe: our nation’s current power generation is not sustainable. As a nation, we still get over 67% of our electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.
Regardless if one believes in global warming or not, we can all agree that the toxic pollution that these carbon-based energy sources spew into the atmosphere is not a good thing. The simple test is this: would you like your family to live next to a coal-fired power plant?
Standard electricity is produced from fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. When burned, these fuels emit chemical gases causing pollution and harm to our environment. Fossil fuels are not only destructive to the environment, but they are also a limited resource. Solar electricity is by far one of the cleanest forms of energy.
Idaho residents are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. We’re excited to help you throughout your solar journey and hope to help you make a positive impact on the environment while saving you thousands on your electricity bill!

Every sight is a reminder that we ought to do our part as individuals to keep the environment clean. But it’s the perfect place to take advantage of solar for other reasons as well.

We take care of design, permitting, engineering, electrical, installation, paperwork, and everything else.
It’s been almost 4 years now since we opened our Idaho Falls, Blue Raven Solar headquarters. And while there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:
Should I Go Solar in Idaho Falls?
Idaho experiences all four seasons, and sometimes winter can feel twice as long as the summer. So, you may be wondering: Are solar panels even worth it in Idaho Falls?
Idaho receives just about the average annual sunlight for the United States, and although the snow may seem bitter and cold, the state receives less than the average annual precipitation. So, the sun can still shine down on your solar panels to power your home. In fact, the cold is even better for your panels than extreme heat – and because panels absorb the heat from the sun, any snowfall should melt pretty quickly throughout the day, keeping your panels producing power. Solar panels are built to withstand rain, storms, hail, snow, hurricanes, or even someone standing on them (although we don’t recommend that).
Most homeowners switch to solar for the monthly and long-term savings and to reduce their carbon footprint. At Blue Raven Solar, we know that every homeowner is different. So even if a homeowner has a great reason to go solar, sometimes that homeowner’s situation will not permit a viable way to save money by going solar. That is why we pre-qualify each of our customers before they start on their solar journey. Some scenarios that prevent homeowners from going solar are their roof doesn’t get enough sunlight exposure, they don’t have a high enough or taxable income, or their power bill is simply too low. If a homeowner fits into any of these categories, we recommend that they not move forward with solar. By setting this standard, our customers know what they are getting themselves into before they make any payments.
When a customer passes the pre-qualifying stage, we know that their home can greatly benefit from going solar. Thus, we ask the homeowner for their latest energy bills in order to build out an accurate solar proposal. Our proposal team will use a homeowner’s billing information as well as sunlight tracking software to determine how many panels their home will need to offset 100% of their energy bill (or whatever % the homeowner desires). With that proposal built out, one of our solar specialists will personally or virtually meet the homeowner and walk them through the cost, savings, and installation process of going solar with Blue Raven Solar. If a homeowner has any questions, the solar specialist will be able and willing to answer those questions with full transparency. At the end of the meeting, homeowners will be left with a physical or digital proposal that will detail how long it will take to pay off the homeowner’s initial investment. Typically, the average homeowner will see a return on their investment after six to nine years of installation. If the solar owner decides to finance their panels with a loan, we do our best to make sure that the monthly loan payment is lower than their original electricity bill payment so that they are saving from day one of their solar journey.
