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.

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.
Our Indiana customers will save between $15,000 and $50,000+ over a 25-year period depending on the size of their system and their current home energy use.
