Solar Energy is Rising in Northern Utah
A 2018 national report credited northern Utah for being among the top 10 areas for solar power generated per person. But we’re not surprised, are we? With its 226 days of annual sunlight, northern Utah towns like Layton are a great environment for residential solar.
In fact, Utah as a whole is one of the top states for residential solar power generation and boasts an A-rated net metering policy. And with solar system prices dropping by 55% over the last five years, solar panel installations are expected to surge through 2040.
To ensure continued solar affordability, the Utah Department of Energy has released a 10-year solar deployment plan. Our solar company is proud to support this plan and to bring solar savings to more Utahns living in and surrounding Salt Lake City.
Utah also provides great solar tax incentives, but they may not last forever. In addition to the federal tax credit, Utah offers a 25% state tax credit. Unfortunately, this capped credit value decreased from $1600 to $1200 in 2021, and will go down to $800 in 2022. That means there will never been a better time for you to go solar in Utah than in 2021.

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.

Did you know that Utah ranks as the 5th sunniest state in the nation? Even with cloudy winter months that produce the “greatest snow on earth”, Utah receives plenty of solar rays. And no city in the state of Utah has harnessed these rays to power homes like Salt Lake City. While there are many reasons why we love SLC, these are the biggest:
If you’re a homeowner in Layton who is looking to purchase solar panels for your home, you may be overwhelmed with the different types of solar panels, purchasing options, and hundreds of solar panel companies out there. Here are some questions you might want to ask before making the decision:
1. Why should I go solar?
The majority of homeowners choose to go solar for the electricity bill savings, but there are many more benefits of going solar as well. Solar also allows you to control your power bill as well as increase your property value. In some states, solar owners can even get paid for excess energy that their panels produce! Other reasons to go solar are that it helps you reduce your carbon footprint, helps create and sustain hundreds of thousands of American jobs, and promotes the future of renewable energy. No matter the answer, it’s important to determine why you’re going solar as it will heavily influence your answers to the rest of the questions on this list.
2. Is my house 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.
3. How much does solar cost?
The cost of solar panels is determined by how much energy your home uses. 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. With that said, you don’t have to purchase a system that offsets 100 percent of your energy bill. Although it is recommended, you can easily customize your solar system to produce anywhere from 25 percent to 100 percent of your electricity bill. 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.
