There are great tax benefits to take advantage of if you install solar in Idaho.
The biggest is the Residential Alternative Energy Tax Deduction which allows taxpayers to deduct 40% of the system cost in the year of construction, and 20% each year for 3 years after. Per year maximum is $5,000, and the total maximum is $20,000.
Net metering in Idaho allows you to earn credit on your electric bill on days when your system produces more energy than you use.
Rocky Mountain Power, Avista, and Idaho Power have net metering opportunities.
These laws help ensure your Idaho solar installation isn’t covered by shade (say, from a neighbors yard) that would limit the production of your system.
