Idaho Solar

Over 573 megawatts (MW) of solar energy are installed in Idaho. Look at the Residential Alternative Tax Deduction for great savings on solar panels.

Idaho Solar Tax Benefits

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. 

Idaho Net Metering

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.

Solar Energy Property Tax Exemption

Idaho has a Property Tax Exemption for wind, solar, and geothermal energy producers. New solar energy systems are exempt from property tax assessment value in perpetuity. Your property will likely be worth more to prospective buyers, but you won’t have to pay for it!

Idaho Solar Easement Laws

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.

In 2019, Idaho passed a solar easements & rights laws to prevent homeowners associations (HOA) from prohibiting solar panel installation. 

Federal Solar Tax Credit (ITC)

The Federal Solar Tax Credit is 26 percent for construction started before until Dec. 31, 2022.

Similar to other solar tax credits, with the ITC you can deduct 26% of the cost of your solar energy system from your federal taxes.

In 2023, the solar ITC drops to 22%.
