Home to our corporate headquarters, Orem is leading the way to a future powered by clean, reliable energy.
In fact, Utah as a whole is a great state for residential solar power generation and receives plenty of sun year-round despite cold and snowy winters. And with solar system prices dropping by 70% over the last 10 years, solar panel installations in Utah 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 Orem.
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.

If you’re on the fence about purchasing solar panels, here are some pros and cons of solar panels that might help you with the decision:
You’re Betting on the Sun:
Because solar relies on the power of the sun, you have no control over how much electricity your panels will generate. If you live in a cloudy region of the U.S. or if your roof doesn’t have a section that faces south, your panels will generate less power throughout the course of the day. Homeowners can always make up for lack of sunlight with more panels, but that can mean thousands of dollars in extra expenses. With that being said, it is important to utilize available resources from solar companies to calculate how much power the panels on your roof should generate, rather than speculate that the weather conditions where you live will negate all the effects of going solar
As we described in one of our latest posts, Does Going Solar Really Mean Free Electricity?, solar is never free. To power an averaged sized American home, you would need to purchase a solar system that costs upwards of $20,000. Because of its high initial price, many homeowners forget that going solar is an investment and never give it full consideration.
Eliminate Your Power Bill
The most popular reason to go solar is to eliminate your monthly power bill. By having your system sized correctly and owning your panels, you should produce enough electricity to cover the cost of your monthly bill. For the most part, homeowners with solar only have to pay a small monthly connection fee to stay connected to their utility provider.
Reduce your carbon footprint
We all know that solar panels are part of the green movement, but how much do they actually impact the environment? The average residential solar system will offset energy produced by burning over 80 tons of coal or 175 tons of carbon dioxide in its lifetime. The energy generated is also equivalent to planting 4000 trees. So yes, solar panels make an impact. This advantage alone has caused tens of thousands of Americans to go solar!
