Did you know that solar panel equipment is really affordable in Idaho? Prices have dropped 55% over the last 5 years and that’s before you factor in the federal and Idaho tax incentives.

When combined with federal solar rebates your solar panel installation will be approximately 50% less.” Idaho solar companies are taking advantage of these incredible benefits.

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.

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.

How can we describe our love for Pocatello? Well, one big reason is that our founders Ryan and Jeff Lee were raised in Idaho. So we might just have some bias towards helping other Idahoans save with solar ($$$). While there are many reasons why we’re here, these are the biggest:
Is my home in Pocatello right for solar?
For the most part, it is hard to determine on your own whether solar is right for your home, but there are three things you can look at to get a basis of whether you should even consider investing in solar:
If your home checks the boxes for these three verifiers, solar likely will be a wise investment for your home, but there are a couple other factors that can push you away from going solar.
How much does solar cost?
The cost of solar is directly affected by how much energy your home uses, which means your home could need a system that costs well above or below the average price. Therefore, it is difficult to estimate the cost of a system without proper information. Most solar companies can build out an accurate estimate of how much your system will cost by using your last six months of energy bills and a sun tracking software to determine the necessary size of your system to generate 100 percent of your power usage. The price of solar can also be affected by the provider. If you are curious to see who offers the cheapest prices or has the highest reviews, we recommend using a resource like BestCompany.com or SolarReviews.com to get an unbiased opinion on the best solar company in your neighborhood.
How much money will I save with solar?
It’s hard to be happy with the price of solar if you’re unable to determine how much it will allow you to save. Luckily, solar companies always calculate how much a homeowner can save by going solar. Your savings are determined by several factors. Firstly, if you decide to own your system, you are entitled to the federal solar tax credit. The ITC allows you to take 26% of the total cost of your system and apply it as a tax credit in the following year. So, if you purchase a $20,000 system, you’ll be able to take $5,200 off your taxes the next year. Another factor that influences your savings is how you finance your system. A lease or PPA deal will only allow homeowners to save a couple bucks a month, while a cash purchased system will usually put 100% of your power bill back into your pocket. If you purchase your panels with a loan, the loan payment would ideally be lower than your monthly power bill, allowing for automatic monthly savings. All in all, after ownership, the typical system on an optimal home will pay itself off in 6-8 years.
