Should I Install Solar on my Park City or Deer Valley Home?

Let’s face it, heating and cooling your Park City Real Estate can be expensive. Frigid winters and hot summers have your systems running to the max. Many Deer Valley homes, homes for sale in the Colony, Empire Pass real estate, and even some smaller single-family homes in Park City have radiant heating systems for driveways, flooring and not to mention hot tubs, expansive floor plans, substantial hot water demands, multiple refrigerators, golf simulators, and the list goes on and on. Though many of these systems run off natural gas boilers and water heaters, the case for a Solar System in your home is growing. 
So is adding a solar system worth it in Park City or Deer Valley? We believe it is, and not just for financial reasons. Park City and Vail Resorts are going green. Park City is committed to run on 100% renewable electricity for city operations by 2022, and for the whole community by 2030. Vail Resorts, with a similar pledge - a zero net operating footprint by 2030. The commitments are to keep our skies blue, the air fresh, and snow for our winter sports.

The Facts:

- Utah is one of the seven states with the best potential for solar power, along with California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas. Utah allows net metering for residential systems up to 25 kW and up to 2 MW for non-residential users.
- In 2021, 61% of Utah's net electricity generation came from coal-fired power plants.
In 2021, only about 14% of Utah's total electricity generation came from renewable energy sources.
- Utah ranks 11th in the Nation for Solar Power Capability
Inflation Reduction Act Solar Credit - The Residential Clean Energy Credit allows you to subtract 30 percent of solar costs off your federal taxes, through 2032!!!
