Utah Net Metering

Utah has 35 out of 47 electricity providers reporting that they offer net metering to residents with personal solar panels. At the state level, Utah has restricted net metering and feed in tariff regulations.

Energy Loss

The average energy loss for electricity companies in Utah is 2.56%. This includes data from 12 companies, including Provo City Utilities, St George Utilities, and Lehi City Power. For comparison, the countrywide average energy loss is 2.87%. Utah has a rank of 15th best in the United States for energy loss.

Solar Taxes And Rebates

Encouraging private citizens to install solar panels can be a challenge due to high initial costs. Governments can help by issuing rebates and tax breaks to their citizens. Utah has a tax credit of either over $2000 or over 20% of the cost of solar panel purchases. The state offers no rebates to consumers who are purchasing private solar. Utah offers no property tax exemptions to homeowners who purchase private solar panels, making it less attractive for consumers to do so. The state offers sales tax exemptions, but they are highly restricted, making it hard for some residents to qualify.

State Level Initiatives

Whether a consumer is able to easily find electricity plans with renewable fuel sources is partially determined by state level initiatives. States that have Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) have requirements in place for all electric companies who operate in the state. These standards require that a percentage of electricity must be generated using green energy. Utah currently only has limited or optional standards established for electricity generators to follow. Additionally, there are currently no low income solar programs to assist low income families to install solar panels.
