The “Crossroads of America” is a big city with a small-town feel located in the heart of the Midwest. It’s home to one of the best agricultural scenes in the country, a growing economy, and a booming sports scene. The solar industry is also growing in Indiana, with enough solar panels to power over 50,000 homes. Solar is projected to grow substantially in the state over the next five years, ranking 11th in the country for projected growth.


If you live in Indiana, you might be thinking that it might not be the best candidate for solar panels. The winters in the Hoosier state can be long and brutal, but there’s good news for homeowners who want to make the switch to renewable energy. Low temperatures are ideal for solar panels, and they will usually heat up and melt off any snow that is covering them throughout the day. Germany, a country that’s not exactly known for its sunny weather, is one of the world leaders in solar power. So, while there may be some less sunny or snow-filled days that might not be ideal for your panels to produce power, they will still perform year-round and save you thousands on your utility bill.


It’s a great time to go solar in Indiana thanks to improved solar policies and financial incentives by the state. Knowing if solar ownership, lease, or a power purchase agreement (PPA) is the best option for your home can be difficult and confusing. Blue Raven Solar is here to help you along every step of the way when switching to solar! Check out the information below about going solar in Indiana.



STATE TAX CREDIT: Indiana Sales Tax Exemption for electrical generating equipment, renewable energy property tax exemption




BONUS: Energy savings kit. Smart thermostat and home LED light package. Smart Thermostat owners save an average of 23% annually on heating and cooling costs.

For homeowners considering solar in Indiana, there is no better time to make the switch than 2021. Many local incentives including tax credits and net metering are quickly disappearing, meaning less savings the longer you wait.


In Indiana, all solar panel owners are eligible for net metering. As your system produces excess electricity, it will be sold back to your utility for energy credits. Indiana residents can use these credits to pay for future bills in which their system does not cover all of the costs. Unfortunately, homeowners who go solar after 2022 will not be enrolled in these programs.


By adding a solar system to your home, the overall value of your property increases. Fortunately, in Indiana, solar owners do not have to pay property tax on the increased value from buying solar panels.


With sales tax at 7% in Indiana, solar buyers can save big by not having to pay any sales tax on their system.


Solar easement laws make it so that you can enter into an agreement with your neighbor, allowing you to have continued access to sunshine.


Energy is more than numbers on your utility meter or the cost of your monthly electrical bill. Everything you do to help conserve energy has a major impact on our environment. And as a bonus, it has a positive effect on your finances. Solar power protects you from rising energy costs and increases the value of your home. Less than 3% of the current U.S. population are enjoying the benefits & savings of solar energy. Our joy is knowing that our customers are saving money and reducing their carbon footprint. We want the same for you.


With the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and local incentives, Indiana residents are jumping at the chance to become a part of the renewable energy movement. These incentives, along with monthly utility bill savings, make solar make a lot of sense for the Indiana homeowner. Also, utility prices will continue to rise every year, so the savings from going solar will also increase. 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!

I shopped around and they had the most knowledgeable salesperson. It took some time to get all the permits and schedule everything, but they kept me informed and took care of everything. The crew did the install in a day, working until 7pm to complete the job. All around, very pleased.

Awesome experience. They did a great job getting everything setup and all the paperwork filed. Everything was spelled out in the contracts and they made sure I understood exactly what everything meant. I ran all the docs through my lawyer and there wasn’t any BS in them and what they told me was accurate.I would tell you to call them.I worked with 3 other companies getting quotes and all of the other contracts were ambiguous and didn’t clearly spell out what the deal was. I was kind of left to my own avail to trudge their stuffs.read more

This entire experience has been super easy and fast. The only delay I've seen is with my town and the build permit and final inspection. That's normal though. Blue Raven has given me updates along the way. The installation was done quickly and professionally. Super impressed so far.

We installed our panels about a year ago and I am very happy. Our Blue Raven contacts handled literally every phase of the installation from applying for permits from our village and HOA to the final debug. Then when we had a problem with the output if a few panels they made it right. My bill went down to 15.00 this last summer. That was awesome to stick it to the man. Being in Chicago I realize this will fluctuate and I am looking forward to seeing if I can manage my electric usage to build up my credits and keep it at 15.00 year round. All in all my experience with Blue Raven was and has been a very positive one and would recommend them to anyone thinking of going solar.read more

Blue Raven Solar proved to be easy to work with, from sales to installation. The installation crew was courteous, extremely efficient, and on time. We haven't turned on the system yet--there are some checks to complete first--but everything up to now has been very professional and worthy of recommendation to others.
